And in need of FCC regulation? (wikileaks)
How about Cable news ?(Beck)
All communication between people is a threat to totalitarians in a war of ideas. That makes the internet the number one threat they have.
Is the internet too dangerous?
Sometimes. I broke a nail once on my keyboard while surfing.
Rush Limbaugh has the right to see whatever he wants to say. He can’t do it on publicly regulated air waves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards to say the public cannot be offended based on their race or gender in this country, and you federally regulated air waves that they give licenses to that are very competitive and the FCC is very selective based on standards.

Sea water does a lot of damage to laptops. Just sayin'.
Yup. I've seean water do damage to laptops...... Don't need to sea it again.
Which is why Lieberman has been calling up people who posted completely legal information and demanded that they remove it from public view.
FCC push to regulate news draws fire

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) pushed back on Monday against a contention by a Democratic FCC commissioner that the government should create new regulations to promote diversity in news programming.
Barton was reacting to a proposal made last week by FCC Commissioner Michael Copps, who in a speech suggested that broadcasters be subject to a new "public values test" every four years.
"I hope … that you do not mean to suggest that it is the job of the federal government, through the [FCC], to determine the content that is available for Americans to consume,” Barton wrote Monday in a letter to Copps.
Copps had suggested that the test would make a broadcaster's license renewal contingent upon proof that they meet a prospective set of federal criteria.
He said outlets should be mandated to do the following: prove they have made a meaningful commitment to public affairs and news programming, prove they are committed to diversity programming (for instance, by showing that they depict women and minorities), report more to the government about which shows they plan to air, require greater disclosure about who funds political ads and devote 25 percent of their prime-time coverage to local news.
The regulations would apply to all news outlets operating on the public airwaves.

I doubt they will be satisfied with just the public airwaves
The FCC crushing free expression on the internets is far more dangerous than Julian Assange.
He should have been flattened in July. It's telling that nothing happened to him until he threatened to release information embarrassing to a Major Financial Institution.
That's why we need to get that "internet kill switch" into Obamas hands NOW!
