Free Speech Muzzled - In a similar vein to our Orwell Awards, the US Muzzle Awards given to Free Speech Violators were awarded last Tuesday. The Secret Service won a Muzzle for investigating whether Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Michael Ramirez of the LA Times could be charged with "threatening the life" of the US President for a cartoon depicting a man pointing a gun at Bush. Nominations for the Australian Orwell Awards are now open for both national and international violators of Press Freedom. Enter your nominations at
