Tyranny Closing In—Blog Censorship

Cartoon source

The tyranny imbedded in the Sword of Damocles that is hovering over the U.S is moving closer. See ”The latest Obama crackdown; taming an unruly blogosphere” by Vincent Gioia. He says
The recent Obama intended appointment of Cass Sunstein, a Harvard Law professor, to the position of head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs is the next nail in the coffin of the First Amendment. In this position Sunstein will have powers that are unprecedented and very far reaching; not merely mind-boggling but with explicit ability to use the courts to stifle free speech if it opposes Obama policies….

Sunstein wants a system that includes a “notice and take down” law that would require bloggers and service providers to “take down falsehoods upon notice,” even those made by commentators.
