    This is not a joke...the president has appointed a "Director of Progressive Media and on-line Response". The president will now have an official (at taxpayer expense) liaison between the white house and George Soros. It's not clear exactly what director Jesse Lee's duties are but you can bet your ass-ets that the 1st Amendment will be kicked around. It should be noted that Jesse Lee is married to the left wing activist who created the "betray-us" logo for the US commander in Iraq.

    First, you forgot to link your source – assuming it’s a legitimate news source and not some weird rightwing blog or the like.

    Second, what evidence do you have that there will be any effort to pass laws to preempt the First Amendment?

    Yup.

    Clearly this ADMIN understands the amazing power of the internet to shape public opinion and is planning on using that power to get across their POV.

    But they're doing it openly enough, so at least we KNOW who they are and why they're taking their positions.

    I'd be a lot more worried if they were doing it clandestinely.

    Maria Shriver was married to right wing "hero" stud "Ahhhnold". She wasn't infected. We hope.

    Isn't THAT the whole point of doing something clandestinely?
