More 4 News are tonight covering the blogger campaign in support of Tim Ireland and Craig Murray, started by Justin, for the 8pm news programme. I’ll be on there talking about this and what it means for trying to control free speech over the web. Well done to More 4 for being ahead of the pack. But it means I end up missing the Daily Show.

Updated further: Coverage also on: MediaGuardian.co.ukThe Times and Channel 4. A brief mention also on Bright’s blog. Also on AFP and Sunday Herald.

    More4 news is the dog’s nads. Jon Snow’s ties raise a bigger cackle in my house than the strained formulaic humour on the Daily Show. The Daily Show ain’t funny anymore.

    Unfortunately I’m going to miss this. If it turns up somewhere — like YouTube or BitTorrent — can someone let me know?

    The interview has been posted HERE

    Nice job Sunny. I hope they let you stay on to watch the Daily Show in the Green Room.

  5. Sunny — on 21st September, 2007 at 10:14 pm  

    Ahh well, not one of my greatest performances, but at least they covered the story. Craig Murray couldn’t make it apparently and none of the Arsenal bloggers/writers wanted to say anything either.

  6. Sunny — on 21st September, 2007 at 10:14 pm  

    Oh and I was under strict instructions not to refer too much to the case or controversy in case I said anything libellous.

  7. Leon — on 21st September, 2007 at 10:26 pm  

    I thought you did alright mate, especially given the restrictions. You made a pertinent point that we’re not a pitch fork waving mob out for blood well.

    It was fine, did they let you know which questions they were going to ask you before the interview or was it just on the spot questioning. But anyways you got the main points across: freedom of speech; Blogs not just mindless thugs; and duty of care of webhosting companies.

    Jeez, where have I been?
    I wish I’d seen you.
    As a Gooner I am certainly not happy about funny Russian money tarnishing my club and am also perturbed by the heavy-handed legal attack on bloggers’ free speech.
    These are clearly 2 separate issues but they will become entwined. Is this man fit for purpose to lead our club?
    No way! I’m firmly in the eff off Usmanov/Dein camp.
    I hope to be involved in any anti-Usmanov campaign.
    What a dog you have become Dein

  10. El Cid — on 22nd September, 2007 at 9:11 am  

    Have seen it now though — good stuff.

    Message to Usmanov/Dein: Tony Montana was also a political refugee

    Nice to see you in action Sunny

  12. Nyrone — on 22nd September, 2007 at 11:51 am  

    You did fine Sunny, you made the point in a calm and collected manner under the glaring lights, so credit to you for being able to do that.

    These heavy-handed (read: understatement) techniques are going to blow up in Usmanov’s face. The story appears to be growing exponentially.

    I also recommend everybody also read Craig Murray’s ‘Murder in Samarakand’ it is an astonishing book, crucially written from the inside the system by somebody with the balls to stand up and say what needed to be said about the corrupt Uzbekistan regime.

    “As a Gooner I am certainly not happy about funny Russian money tarnishing my club and am also perturbed by the heavy-handed legal attack on bloggers’ free speech.”

    Especially now that Arsenal are playing ‘beautiful’ football and winning!! I wonder if Abramovich will make a trade of chelsea for arsenal. Arsenal fans beware!!

    Sahil:

    Luckily Milan will never be taken over by a dodgy billionare businessman. Oh wait…

  15. douglas clark — on 22nd September, 2007 at 9:02 pm  

    This is really not an easy issue to get across in, what, three minutes or so?

    So, well done Sunny.

    Given the restrictions they placed on you, the boy done brilliant, as they say…

    You are starting to look a lot more comfortable under the TV lights.

  16. Jagdeep — on 22nd September, 2007 at 10:17 pm  

    If Usmanov buys Arsenal at least we’ll know who ate all the pies eh, El Cid?

    “Luckily Milan will never be taken over by a dodgy billionare businessman.”

    Well he may be a dodgy billionare but at least he’s mine and your’s dodgy chairman ;) plus he’s amusing:

    True enough- and I cannot see him ever selling.
