Via CBS News, posted on Drudge, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) released a list of five categories of websites that it will be blocking its employees from accessing from a government computer. Here’s the list (which isn’t defined of course):
- Controversial opinion
- Criminal activity
- Extreme violence (including cartoon violence) and gruesome content
The news today is over the “controversial opinion” websites, which I and many other conservative analysts and pundits agree are those websites that purport a differing view of the Administration, like MichelleMalkin.com, HotAir.com, Drudge Report, RedState.com, Human Events, and probably Fox News.
That is certainly concerning, but what’s the category that’s missing in that list? You get one guess — links here and here should help.
The TSA, under the Obama Administration, apparently aren’t that worried about blocking pornography websites. In fact, they’ll apparently block an opinionated conservative over a porn site.
I don’t think it’s an oversight either. More than a few employees at government agencies have been caught surfing pornography at work, some up to eight hours a day, and have received little to no punishment. I’m not advocating government employees spend all day on the Drudge Report or Fox News, but I think it’s okay to check the news or opinion sites maybe during their lunch break, whereas surfing pornography is always a bad idea and should never be condoned, especially at work.
What kind of society do we live in that now views pornography as less harmful than ConcernedWomen.org websites?
