Visual Hugo slashdotted
Visual Hugo got slashdotted with his article about the fine Jurgen Verstrepen received last week for podcasting (and broadcasting in the beginning) his program “Zwart of Wit”.
I do believe our country made a big mistake here and I do feel the government is censoring our freedom of speech. So yes, in my opinion, Jurgen Verstrepen has the right to say there is no freedom of speech and he has been censored and punished by the government for this.
I do support the freedom of speech, although I don’t support the political party Vlaams Belang or Jurgen Verstrepens personal political point of view. As a reaction on the fine, he did a call on his blog to file complaints against all the other Belgian podcasters (not only the politicians or the government institutions). That’s no my idea of how a politician should act.
Update: VH on Adam Curry’s weblog. Who’s next? The New York Times?
