An excerpt re censorship.....
NEWT SAYS: COMMUNICATIONS DECENCY ACT is unconstitutional. Love him or
hate him, give the guy credit -- he's trying to make sure that any
measure similar to Sen. Exon's proposal dies a miserable death in the
House. He basically slammed Exon's bill during his weekly cable show,
"Progress Report". Separately, Rep. Chris Cox (R-Calif) and Rep. Ron
Wyden (D-Ore) are planning to co-sponsor a house bill that would thwart
any measure to curb content on the net. Cox and Wyden favor industry
standards and technology solutions rather than censorship.
Hmmmm..perhaps Microsoft has a strong lobby? They have planted
themselves firmly on the technology (software) side of this issue...
