Republican Senator John McCain has introduced legislation that would fine blogs up to $300,000 for offensive statements, photos and videos posted by visitors on comment boards, effectively nixing the open exchange of ideas on the Internet, providing a lethal injection for unrestrained opinion, and acting as the latest attack tool to chill freedom of speech on the world wide web...

...McCain's proposed bill is just another step in greasing the skids for Internet 2, a tightly controlled, regulated and privileged world wide web where government approval will be required just to run a blog.

In recent months, a chorus of propaganda intended to demonize the Internet and lead it down this path has spewed forth from numerous establishment organs.

- The White House's own recently de-classified strategy for "winning the war on terror" targets Internet conspiracy theories as a recruiting ground for terrorists and threatens to "diminish" their influence.

- The Pentagon recently announced its effort to infiltrate the Internet and propagandize for the war on terror.

- In a speech last month, Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff identified the web as a "terror training camp," through which "disaffected people living in the United States" are developing "radical ideologies and potentially violent skills."

The bills may pose the same constitutional problems as those raised by similar laws passed in previous congressional sessions. The Communications Decency Act of 1995 was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court on the grounds that the law violated First Amendment rights to free speech. A duplicate of the bills, the Child Online Decency Act (CODA), was approved by Congress last year. A federal court has issued an injunction against CODA claiming that it, too, infringes on freedom of speech.

In addition, a federal judge in Virginia has ruled that Internet filtering software used on public library computers violates the First Amendment.

H.R. 368 has no cosponsors and has been referred to the House Commerce Committee. S. 97 has one cosponsor and has been referred to the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee...
