OSNews, Generic OSes I know that there's a number of readers who don't like it when OSnews covers political topics, I'm one of them. These political upheavals however spell danger for operating system hobbyists and so I dedicate this article to framing the political news within the context of what we are here to read about: operating systems.

Actually, it was quite a enjoyable read. Everything you said about mega-corporations, governments etc. is correct. They all want complete control of information and therefore us, as they can then control what we say, do and think. It is an issue that effects us all no matter which corner of the planet you live in and as such it is an issue not only "worthy" of reporting on, but "demands" it.
As you say, things like this not only effect the political arena but it also spills out all over everything that your average consumer will use including computer software, hardware and the use of the internet. I see no harm in reporting on these issues through OSnews or anywhere else. As already said, it is an issue that effects us all.
