UN opposition to new media is a bummer

The United Nations rarely agrees on anything; They do however seem to find common ground when it comes to kicking bloggers, and any non-traditional media without a hierarchical editing process, out of the public discourse.

According to Inner City Press, "The UN agencies which, since the June 21-22 meeting in Madrid, have refused to answer a single question from Inner City Press including the UN Development Program and the World Health Organization. UNDP, which is embroiled in scandals about its close relations with regimes in North Korea, Zimbabwe, Myanmar, Uganda, has also taken to calling the editors of journalists who ask questions, ostensibly to verify the reporter's assignment and deadline."

Can't we all just get along?
