As written in one of Hotonis’ posts, Cass Sunstein has been appointed as head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs by Obama. This gives him full control of such agencies as the Environmental Protection Agency.
How is this (imperial) appointment of Sunstein a First Amendment fail?
One of his books reveals his view that what is said online should be “regulated” in order to keep bloggers, etc. under control. Essentially, he wants to keep people from saying what they believe online if it might offend someone, or, more likely, if the government does not agree.
If he gets his way, goodbye free speech.
