Hackers, Web Hosting Companies Become Censors Of War Coverage

In a world with an open network like the internet, it’s not just the government that can censor – it’s anyone. Web hosting companies and hackers have become vigilante censors, taking down websites they find objectionable. Of course, the flip side to this is that, on the internet, content (once released) can’t be kept hidden. So even if these sites are taken down, the information is out there, and can be replicated and mirrored very quickly.
