The very definition of irony

The opening graph from an AP story caught my eye today:

President Barack Obama prodded China about Internet censorship and free speech, but the message was not widely heard in China, where his words were blocked online and shown on only one regional television channel.

Talk about irony.

For once, I’m speechless—and 250 million Chinese Internet users continue to be voiceless.
