Es muss nicht immer China sein…

Clark Hoyt berichtet in der New York Times über einen Kotau des Schwesterblatts International Herald Tribune gegenüber der Familie des Präsidenten Singapurs:

Lee Kuan Yew once testified, according to The Times, that he designed the draconian press laws to make sure that “journalists will not appear to be all-wise, all-powerful, omnipotent figures.” Four years ago, The Times quoted his son as saying, “If you don’t have the law of defamation, you would be like America, where people say terrible things about the president and it can’t be proved.”

Zensur? Nein, nur kreatives Medienrecht.
