And now the internet!
Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-WV), has spent months behind closed doors drafting a Senate bill revision, S. 773. This bill would grant the president dictatorial powers to take control of portions of the internet, by allowing him to "declare a cybersecurity emergency". Indeterminate authority to exercise this kind of power over private "non-governmental" computer networks, could turn our "free speech zone" into nothing more than a political propaganda machine.
