Authorities in Jordan have issued orders to the country’s internet services providers (ISPs) to block access to more than 200 websites, it was reported.

According to Al Bawaba, Jordan’s Telecommunications Regulatory Commission issued the orders as the sites, which are mostly news outlets, do not comply with a recent change in state’s press and publications law.

Some of the more prominent pages that have apparently been blocked by the government include Qatari news portal Al Jazeera, Time Out magazine, erotic publication Penthouse and the site of the Muslim Brotherhood in Jordan.

A list of nearly 200 of the reportedly banned sites, as provided by Al Bawaba, can be seen below:

Fake news, but to be honest, some and by some i mean lots of local news websites have been misleading lately on what news they write, with no actual relevance on the real situation. they have encouraged violence, and they have been bad influence to the people, all in the name of getting more hits to a story, so in other words no ethic's or standards.
im sure the government knows whats best.
