FOREIGN-OWNED Newspaper, 'Perth Now', published a seemingly bizarre statement regarding its readers ability to comment on a Chinese legal case.
The controversial tabloid, owned by the American company News Ltd published, in bold, this quote at the end of its story, "For legal reasons, comments cannot be published on this matter."
The obvious question is how can people in Australia effect the application of Chinese law?
If it is so important, then, why, doesn't other News Ltd media tabloids -such as Melbourne's controversial, Herald Sun- follow the same rule?
Is this an attempt to lend credibility and seriousness to a story for marketing purposes?
Is this a more sinister attempt at trying to control free speech?
The mikiverse will report more news as it comes to hand.
