Ngaba amaNqaku oLuntu aKhuselwe phantsi kweNtetho yaSimahla kunye noShicilelo lwaSimahla?

Esi inokuba sesinye seziganeko ezoyikisayo ezisongela intetho yasimahla kunye nomatshini wokushicilela wasimahla kweli lizwe. Indlu yeeNgwevu ipasile umthetho wekhaka losasazo obo buchwephesha buchaziweyo kwaye kuphela kodidi olukhuselekileyo lwentatheli ngabo babandakanyekayo imisebenzi esemthethweni yokuqokelela iindaba.

Ukusuka kwimbono yeenyawo ezingama-10,000, umthetho osayilwayo ubonakala ngathi ngumbono omkhulu. Iphephandaba i-LA Times lide layibiza ngokuba “nguMthetho oYilwayo wokukhusela intatheli”. Ingxaki lulwimi olusisiseko oluvumela urhulumente ukuba achaze ukuba yintoni a intatheli ngubani, ngubani a intatheli yi, okanye yintoni ukuqokelela iindaba ngokusemthethweni na.

Nantsi into endiyithathayo. Ubuntatheli bobuntatheli busebenzisa uxinzelelo olungenakoyiswa kurhulumente wethu obhengeza itoni yemicimbi. Ewe kukho inkxaso enamacala amabini ekuchazeni ngokutsha kunye nokunciphisa umda wokuba ngubani okanye yintoni ubuntatheli. Nabani na ogrogrisa ukuveza iingxaki zikarhulumente angaphulukana nokukhuselwa kwakhe ngamajelo eendaba phantsi koMgaqo-siseko wethu. Bonke abezopolitiko bangayithanda loo nto… oko kuthetha ukuba banokusebenzisa imikhosi yaseburhulumenteni ukugrogrisa kwaye yoyikise abo bangavumelani nabo.

Nokuba uyavuma na Edward Snowden okanye hayi, ulwazi alukhuphileyo lwazisa uluntu kwaye lwabangela ingqumbo yeenkqubo apho i-NSA yayihlola kuthi. Lo mthetho uyilwayo awuchaphazeli ukuba semthethweni kwento eyenziwe nguSnowden. Eyoyikisayo, inokuba nefuthe lokuba ingaba intatheli eyayisikhuphileyo yayisemthethweni na, nangona wayengummi waseMelika. Kwakukhululwa izinto ezihleliweyo ukuqokelela iindaba ngokusemthethweni?

Phakathi kowe-1972 nowe-1976, uBob Woodward noCarl Bernstein bavela njengezona ntatheli zimbini zidumileyo eMelika kwaye bachongwa ngonaphakade njengezintatheli ezaphula iWatergate, elona bali likhulu kwezopolitiko zaseMelika. Uninzi lolwazi ababelunikiwe lwenziwa ngokufumana ulwazi ngaphakathi kwi-White House. Ngaba oko ukuqokelela iindaba ngokusemthethweni?

Mhlawumbi iRiphabhlikhi esemandleni ingatsho ukuba i-MSNBC ayikho semthethweni. Mhlawumbi iiDemokhrasi ezisemandleni zingatsho ukuba iindaba zeFox News azikho semthethweni. Ungathini ukuba intatheli ibhengeza iscandal sikarhulumente Ngaphantsi kokuqokelelwa kweendaba ngokusemthethweni? Ngaba unokuphoswa entolongweni kunye nehlazo elingcwatyelwe? Ezi ziingxaki nje kwimithombo yeendaba zemveli. Kuya kusiba kubi xa ucinga nge-Intanethi kwaye nokuba ukubhala inqaku kwi-Wiki kukhuselwe (awunakuchazwa njengablogi okanye intatheli).

Kuthiwani xa uqala iphepha le-Facebook ukuphikisa okanye ukuxhasa isihloko. Uchitha itoni yexesha lokugcina ulwazi kwi-intanethi, usabelana ngalo kwiphepha lakho le-Facebook, ukhulisa abaphulaphuli kunye nokwakha uluntu. Ngaba uyintatheli? Ngaba iphepha lakho likaFacebook likhuselwe? Ngaba uqokelele ulwazi owabelane ngalo ngokufanelekileyo? Okanye… ungamangalelwa yinkcaso, uluntu luvale, kwaye lutshixiwe ngenxa yokuba awukhuselwanga phantsi kukarhulumente definition.

Ngemidiya yoluntu kunye newebhu yedijithali, phantse wonke umntu othabatha inxaxheba uqokelela kwaye abelane ngeendaba. Sonke kufuneka sikhuselwe.

Emuva xa kwakubhalwa uMgaqo-siseko, nawuphi na umntu oqhelekileyo kwisitalato owayenokuboleka okanye afumane umatshini wokushicilela intatheli. Ukuba ubuyela umva kwaye uphonononge amanye amaphepha ephepha elinye awayeprintwe ngelo xesha, ayemanyumnyezi. Abapolitiki batyholwa ngobuxoki obupheleleyo ukuze babasasaze kuluntu ukuze bangcwabe iinjongo zabo zezopolitiko. Ukuba yintatheli bekungafuneki ukuba ube nesidanga… awukhange uphinde upele okanye usebenzise igrama efanelekileyo! Kwaye imibutho yeendaba ayizange ivele kude kube ngamashumi eminyaka kamva njengoko amaphephandaba aqala ukuthenga iisetyhula ezincinci. Oku kukhokelele kwimithombo yeendaba zosasazo esinayo namhlanje.

Iintatheli zokuqala zazingabemi bokufumana ilizwi. Kwakukho iqanda mthethweni ukuba bajolise kubani na, balufumana njani ulwazi, okanye balupapasha phi. Ukanti… iinkokheli zelizwe lethu… ezazisoloko zijolise kolu hlaselo… bakhetha ukukhusela amalungelo okuthetha ngokukhululekileyo kunye nobuntatheli. Bakhethe, ngenjongo, ukuba bangachazi ukuba yintoni i-media, zaziqokelelwa njani iindaba, okanye zenziwa ngubani.

Ndiyavuma ngokupheleleyo Matt Drudge kule nto, ngubani Ingxelo yeDrudge ngekhe ikhuselwe phantsi kwalo mthetho uyilwayo. Lo mthetho oyilwayo owoyikekayo onqamleza kwi-fascism, ukuba awuvuli mnyango kuwo.

    UDoug -yintloko nje phezulu, bendinengxaki yokusebenzisa isandiso sam se-buffer (khange ifumane i-URL) kwaye andikwazi ukusebenzisa u-Google + kwindawo yakho yesabelo kuba "ibisezantsi" kwiphepha kwaye andinakukwazi ukuskrola . Ukuvutha kuya kuba mnandi.
