    U.S. to Host World Press Freedom Day in 2011

    You'd expect this kind of double-speak from the Soviet Union or China, but it's now in the "land of the free."

    "At the same time, we are concerned about the determination of some governments to censor and silence individuals, and to restrict the free flow of information. "


    "On November 18, 2010, the lame duck Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously voted to move forward with censoring the Internet via the COICA bill, S. 3804, although the bill is a clear violation of the First Amendment.

    Here’s what the Electronic Frontier Foundation, an international non-profit digital rights advocacy and legal organization based in the United States, says about S. 3804:

    The “Combating Online Infringements and Counterfeits Act” (COICA) is an Internet censorship bill which is rapidly making its way through the Senate. Although it is ostensibly focused on copyright infringement, an enormous amount of noninfringing content, including political and other speech, could disappear off the Web if it passes."
