AOL News Networking Website Bans Prison Planet - Stifling dissent # 13

AOL-Time Warner's social networking website Propeller.com has banned submission of all Prison Planet.com material - citing Prison Planet's "inflammatory" articles about 9/11 as its justification. (see above, click to enlarge)

Paradoxically the Propellor site currently headlines a food stamps story from the NYT
As Jobs Vanish and Prices Rise, Food Stamp Use Nears Record by Erik Eckholm 31/3/07 which, as it is a subscription only site is not readily accessible - unlike Prison Planet !

We can expect more of this... but maybe this tells a tale of how successful and far sighted the AOL managmnt is in meeting the public's demands...

Nothing new in AOL being censorious. In '02 they were bouncing back emails containing this link because, they said, AOL users had complained about it.
