    I always suspect that the Liberals or Democrats are everywhere on the internet, attacking and spreading the propaganda. It sure seems like it and now I find this story about using software to hide the identity of political activitist.

    I wonder, are they here.

    I'm not surprised. Welcome to Socialist/Progressive America. Just look at this White House's very close relationship with Facebook and Google Execs. This stuff really shouldn't surprise anyone who has been paying attention. Look for more Anti-Conservative/Republican propaganda to appear on Facebook and Google in the near future as well. The Deals have been cut. People just need to be more aware of what's going on. It's all about the propaganda and who controls it. Right now Facebook & Google control it completely. This White House has very close ties with both Corporations. Just pay attention and you'll notice their subtle Pro-Obama propaganda. Thanks for your great post.

    Indeed. It's not a Coinkydink that Obama dined with Eric Schmidt and the Zuckernerd last week.

    Hey - somebody merged and moved this thread into the MEDIA forum?

    That's whack.

    This is more of a political issue than a media one, fo shizzle ma whizzle.

    They try to squelch things they don't want people seeing.... Under the guise of "wrong forum." This story is a POLITICS story, not a "media" story.

    I don't get why the government should be contracting out to fake PUBLIC OPINION CONSENSUS.

    I know that political campaign organizations do this all of the time, but for our actual elected government - that is beyond Orwellian.
