News Gathering A Crime
USA Patriot Act II would make news gathering a crime
Think the first Patriot Act was a civil rights and personal privacy tragedy? Just wait until you see Patriot Act II. Section 102 of the police state bill would make it a crime to engage in any information gathering, meaning that people who gather news headlines on the Internet would suddenly be deemed criminals and terrorists.
Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
