Obama wants Citizens to report Health Care bloggers to flag@whitehouse.gov

So the First Amendment limitations don’t stop at yelling, ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater.  The White House has extended the danger criteria to bloggers who are reading H.R. 3200 and pointing out the flaws and misinformation that is flowing from the Government.  After all, in our opinion, it is alright to yell, “fire’ in a crowded movie theater that is indeed on fire.

Reason.tv: In an effort to push back against criticism of its health care reform plans, the Obama administration is sending one of the many former journalists in its employ onto the digital airwaves of Youtube to attack Matt Drudge and other critics for spreading “disinformation” and “lies.” Since “we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House,” health reform Communications Director Linda Douglass says, “we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.”

“By requesting citizens send ‘fishy’ emails to the White House, it is inevitable that the names, email, addresses, IP addresses and private speech of U.S. citizens will be reported to the White House,” Cornyn wrote in a letter to Obama. “You should not be surprised that these actions taken by your White House staff raise the specter of a data collection program.”

Cornyn asked Obama to cease the program immediately, or at the very least explain what the White House would do with the information it collects.
