Bush dictates ideology to deaf community through secret censorship. Advocates for deaf charge censorship in closed captioning

The Bush administration has cut off its closed captioning for nearly 200 TV shows, prompting charges of secret censorship to promote an ideological agenda. …

…”What they are doing is telling the nation’s deaf what they can and can’t watch,”…

…”They put a fast one over on all of us because they didn’t go to public notice and comment. They just secretly did it.”…

…The blocking of the 200 programs was not a cost-cutting measure, Justesen added. …

…He said the new ruling also discriminates against people who use captioning to learn English as a second language and hearing parents with deaf children who might want to choose what they watch on TV together. “Talk about family values.”…

Note the inclusion of programs such as “Courage the Cowardly Dog,” “AMC Documentaries,” “I Dream of Jeannie,” “What’s New Scooby-Doo?,” and “Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius – Nickelodeon.”

In other backwards stupidities, Bush attempts to keep the US living in a bygone era through futher senseless censorships:

An internal memo in 2002 instructed federal government Web sites to eliminate content that “does not reflect the priorities, philosophies or goals of the present administration.”

This included the disappearance from the Centers for Disease Control Web site of instructions on how to properly use a condom to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.

Help save the United States! Vote NO to Bush in 2004!
