"Journalists" are increasingly difficult to distinguish from the firemen in Fahrenheit 451. People argue about whether Brave New World or 1984 was the more prescient dystopian novel, but for my money, Bradbury was the great prophet of Information Age totalitarianism. Simply for the fact that the censorship didn't come from the top-down, but from the bottoms up. Things were censored in order not to offend. Bradbury nailed that.
