In fact this is already starting to happen, and as this trend continues there is going to be more of a push to censor political information that is transmitted through these mediums. Unfortunately, that has already began to happen as well.

 

Just this week The Telegraph reported that:

 

 

“Now, a sinister new trend has started, whereby phone providers are automatically blocking access to certain websites for “mature content”, rather than “adult content”.

 

Mobile provider 3UK is blocking access to political satire as “mature content”; Orange is preventing access to feminist articles as “mature content” through its automatically applied Orange Safeguard service; several providers are blocking perfectly legitimate sites like Pink News because they deal with gay issues, or Channel 4′s excellent Embarrassing Bodies website, because of the graphic discussion of body parts and sexuality.

 

This was bad enough……….
