Action Alert: Apple Censors Drone War

Apple Censors Drone War
Company calls political app ‘objectionable and crude’
The Internet makes it easier to share and publish information that Big Media won’t publish themselves. But that doesn’t mean powerful companies still won’t try to control access to that information.
Apple recently rejected–for the third time–the Drones+ app, a tool for iPhones that adds a location to a map every time a drone strike is reported. The database of drone strikes is maintained by the well-respected Bureau of Investigative Journalism.
Our friends at RootsAction are stepping up to protest this act of censorship. If you think Apple should stop trying to shield its users and customers from the reality of U.S. warmaking, then please add your name to this petition.
