I think the desire to filter the content their device transfers is likely to be harmful to the intended use of the system; in a scenario where freedom of information is threatened, participants would want to carry state TV and sports in addition to regional news so that it's plausible (and even likely) that the reason for participating is actually to follow the latest football matches, not protest the government. That also means that the people who actually just want the latest sports aren't able to avoid spreading the region news, and everyone cares about football, while (in the situation where freedom of information is threatened and matters) only a significant minority of the population wants to protest the government.
