Re: [tor-talk] Tor mentioned on Canadian News Network (and in Russian too)
See a Russian prime time "Central News" video
in the middle of the records there is a reportage
Tor and Bitcoin depicted in highly dark and
criminal ways to organise networks for drugdealers,
illegal weapons, killers, etc.
No words about dissidents, leakers, whistleblowers,
or privacy rights.
