Real or Imagined Threat – Revisited

Two weeks ago, I mused on how news was being presented to the public by the media in the context of the "war on terror" and used the reporting on the Kamil Bourgass case as the example. In that piece, I referred to an article, written by Duncan Campbell, that appeared in the Guardian that day.

Now it appears that the article has been pulled from the Guardian’s web site "for legal reasons". At least, that’s what Justin McKeating over at Chicken Yoghurt is claiming. And just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean to say that they’re not out to get you.

Well, at least the article by Jon Silverman is still there on the BBC website, and the article published on the 14th April by The Register makes for interesting reading.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
