The Last Censor of Myanmar
Friday, November 30, 2012
When Barack Obama became the first serving president to visit Myanmar (or Burma),which just a few months ago was a Southeast Asian pariah nation uttered in the same breath as North Korea and Iran, he found a country newly and seriously changed. Protests, most kinds of speech and freedom of the press are allowed for the first time in over 40 years. Reporter Gabrielle Paluch reports from Yangon on how the end of censorship has affected journalists, novelists, musicians and the country's (hopefully) last censor.
