    China has censored parts of the new US president's inauguration speech that have appeared on a number of websites.

    Live footage of the event on state television also cut away from Barack Obama when communism was mentioned.

    China's leaders appear to have been upset by references to facing down communism and silencing dissent.

    English-language versions of the speech have been allowed on the internet, but many of the Chinese translations have omitted sensitive sections.

  2. I hope this type of government behavior does not find roots in the US in the near future. We're already seeing a lot of internet filtering in Australia. This could take the world down a dark road.
     
  3. It's called the fairness doctrine and it's most likely coming soon.
