Russia enacts law punishing reporters who cast government into disrepute

IT’S BEEN DONE SO MANY TIMES BEFORE.

Days after the largest censorship event in human history (the global ban on possession of non-government-approved video from the supposed mosque shooting in New Zealand) the government of Russia has enacted a law designed to fine and imprison people who publish news which disrespects the government, or is otherwise designated by the government as “fake news” See here.

“The law on disrespecting authorities backs punishment for “offending state symbols” and stipulates hefty fines and jail terms of 15 days for repeat offenders.”

“Websites that fail to comply would be blocked.”
