Was it really necessary to quote the five pages of signatures? That list of names took up over six times as much space as the rest of the article. The English portion of the letter would have sufficed for the quote, with a link to the full bi-lingual version with signatures.

That being said:

two of its journalists were under investigation for treason for reporting on their government's mass surveillance programs - in other words they were being investigated for doing their job.
So, investigative journalists being investigated for investigating in an investigative manner?

no one identifying with Truthout, Democracy Now, Huffington Post, RT, or Project Censored signed.

However, the vast majority of people aren’t actually going to read that list, and scrolling down through five pages of what equates to filler after less than a page of actual content in order to get to the forum link is egregiously annoying.
