Blogging Freedom - America Vs. Malaysia

Be thankful live in America where you can blog with freedom. You can blog critically of your government without fear of prison. The recent Presidential election was an example of the power and influence of the new online media, including highly respected and wide read blogs. This was the first Presidential election ever where the majority of people 18-34 got their information from the web.

The internet is a key source of independent news in Malaysia where the government exercises tight control on the mainstream media. Bloggers are now increasingly in the government's sights with several being charged with sedition. One of the most influential bloggers in Malaysia was jailed and just recently released.
