Vietnam sentences bloggers. Anyone noticing in MSM?

In another example of how dictatorships don’t tolerate dissent, Vietnamese courts sentenced 8 bloggers from two to six in jail on charges of anti-government propaganda. One more blogger got 4 years.

From IFEX:

Eight bloggers get sentences ranging from two to six years in jail

I am betting this gets a lot of coverage from the various Vietnamese language papers in the United States.

I wonder how much coverage it gets from the mainstream media. Even in areas with large Vietnamese populations. (Are you listening Washington, D.C. area?)
