tyler — I can remember when the Bush administration put in the Patriot Act.
Howls of discontent from mainly the media.
There was no way the government was supposed to spy on us no matter if it may help prevent another terrorist attack.
Have you heard the latest?
Now, the Obama White House will allow the Department of Homeland Security to keep a tab on what journalists are saying about them.
They mainly are keeping an eye on what they said on social media.
Fox Nation reports Under the National Operations Center (NOC)'s Media Monitoring Initiative that came out of DHS headquarters in November, Washington has the written permission to retain data on users of social media and online networking platforms.
Specifically, the DHS announced the NCO and its Office of Operations Coordination and Planning (OPS) can collect personal information from news anchors, journalists, reporters or anyone who may use "traditional and/or social media in real time to keep their audience situationally aware and informed."
This is funny or doesn't matter to you.
I can assure you,you're next.
To use a phrase from the left--- this is Nixonian.
The only good thing about this is it's a government operation, and we know how that is usually run.
Should i tweet that?
That's my point of view, what's yours?
