Freedom all but gone on MYSPACE

This is the image removed from MySpace

I have been using MySpace for a couple of years and was blown away when I received a message from MySpace help telling me they had deleted one of my photos because they said it violated the terms of service and if I continued to violate the terms of service I would lose my account. The image didn’t contain nudity or anything that foul it simply contained a political image of George Bush morphing into Adolph Hitler which I thought was very fitting considering our current lack of privacy, secret CIA prisons in who knows where and people being tortured with the governments consent. So I decided to check and see who owned MySpace and found out that it is now owned by the media giant News Corp. a.k.a. Rupert Murdoch. The same Rupert Murdoch that owns Fox News and has long been in the tank for the Bush administration, the Republicans and the Chinese Communists. Is this where all social networking is heading ?

Below is the email I received from MySpace.
