You know in a warped kind of way there is a certain symmetry to this. It could be the plot for a book.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo told viewers it is illegal for them to possess emails leaked by the website WikiLeaks, and as a result they could not read them and had to rely entirely on the media to learn about their content.
Cuomo’s comments were made early Wednesday morning, but they attracted no attention until a clip was uploaded to YouTube Sunday morning.CNN-host-claims-its-illegal-for-public-to-view-wikileaks-emails-video/
Translation: You the viewing public are too stupid to see the original e-mails you might get the wrong impression. So they are illegal for you to view. The press is above the law and so much smarter; they will supply you with the information you need to know. Turn off the Internet, turn on the TV.
I’m getting this deja vu all over again feeling. This has been done before, I’ve got it Fahrenheit 451.
