Homeland Security to compile database of journalists and “media influencers”


Well, Obama wanted to put PC minders in newsrooms. Good to see that Trump is continuing with this sort of nonsense. Just fantastic. Yet again mistakes of September 11th linger and attack our liberties.

Thing is, this list was probably created long ago.

The Department of Homeland Security wants to track the comings and going of journalists, bloggers and other “media influencers” through a database.

The DHS’s “Media Monitoring” plan, which was first reported by FedBizOpps.gov, would give the contracting company “24/7 access to a password protected, media influencer database, including journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.” in order to “identify any and all media coverage related to the Department of Homeland Security or a particular event.”
