#1 Labor Department backs off plan forcing reporters to use government-issued computers06-09-2012, 06:18 PM
The Labor Department has backed off a plan to force news agencies to use government-issued computers and other equipment to report on jobless reports and other key economic data, following a GOP-led House hearing this week, according to several published reports.
Agency officials have said they want reporters who analyze, then write about economic reports inside their so-called “lock up” room to use U.S. computers, software and Internet lines so the government can further protect against such potential security breaches as hacking.
But the plan also resulted in cries about potential free-speech violations and the government now having computer access to news agencies.
“This proposal threatens the First Amendment,” Bloomberg News Executive Editor Dan Moss said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing. “The government would literally open the reporters’ notebooks.”Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
