TSA Blocking Employees From Accessing ‘Controversial Opinion’ On the Web


Big Brother is watching.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency’s computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a “controversial opinion,” according to an internal email obtained by CBS News.The email was sent to all TSA employees from the Office of Information Technology on Friday afternoon.

It states that as of July 1, TSA employees will no longer be allowed to access five categories of websites that have been deemed “inappropriate for government access.”

I could hazard a guess as to what constitutes “controversial opinion.”

Update: Maggie pointed out that porn is not one of the blocked categories. Nice.
