Obama to Gag Internet Blogging?

Read this article from the New York Post about Obama need to control blogging sites, and stop what this author calls rumors.  What would a law against Internet blogging mean to a site like Gather?  What happened to freedom of speech?  If a Republican presidential appointee tried this, he’d be ousted.  This along with trying to gag right wing media groups is now reaching its tentacles out to Internet blog sites.  Here’s the article.  You decide.  Our rights and our money are being eroded.  America wake up, quickly.  This is a Czar of some unknown post who wrote a book, “On Rumors.”  He’s a Harvard Professor who will be given power to limit speech on the Internet.  I guess Obama feels we’re not bright enough to know who and what are own sources are.  Be afraid, be very afraid.

 Here’s a quote from the article:

“Although obscure,” reported the Wall Street Journal, “the post wields outsize power. It oversees regulations throughout the government, from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Obama aides have said the job will be crucial as the new administration overhauls financial-services regulations, attempts to pass universal health care and tries to forge a new approach to controlling emissions of greenhouse gases.”

 

Another words, he can silence opponents.
