Censorship and AT and T

It seems that AT and T feels that they have the right to sensor anything they want regardless of what the Constitution has to say about it. Here is a story at Orielly.net about AT and T censoring the LOLLAPALOOZA WEBCAST. It is a bad thing when you give the power to sensor what conglomerates like this feel is inappropriate. They should not have this power at all!

Update:  Apparently this is not the first time that AT and T censored a webcast of a concert according to the Listening Post of the Wired Blog Network.

“I read your article about this and it makes me so angry that AT&T say this is a one time mistake.

“They did the same thing on the webcasts from Bonnaroo in June during the John Butler Trio show when he was talking about the lack of response from our government during Katrina, and also during the Flaming Lips show when the lead singer was talking about how much George Bush had screwed up.  I was at both of those live shows and saw the webcasts later. The sound did not cut out at any other time – only when someone was talking about George Bush or the goverment in a negative way.

“It was not a mistake, it is full out censorship.”
