    The last few months has seen a drastic increase in the censorship levels for all forms of media. In fact, even college newspapers/newsletters have not been spared, with students who have posted negative news about political figures facing action. Monitoring of all spoken and written communication has greatly increased, making criticism of any person a very risky matter. Even the mainstream media channels like television, seem to focus on providing more positive coverage of high profile figures in the government.
    Gossip can be a great source of entertainment, especially if it is harmless and many magazines and newspaper have sections devoted to gossip. Today, only gossip about figures in the entertainment world has survived, gossip or speculation about figures in other spheres of life, especially politics can be dangerous. Even posting a warning about an extremely well connected scammer, with proof online can be dangerous for the online publisher – financially and they also have to face threats. Every word typed on a laptop will be monitored remotely, and used to frame or accuse the online publisher.
