CBS News reports:

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is blocking certain websites from the federal agency’s computers, including halting access by staffers to any Internet pages that contain a “controversial opinion,” according to an internal email obtained by CBS News....

The email does not specify how the TSA will determine if a website expresses a “controversial opinion.” There is also no explanation as to why controversial opinions are being blocked.

Sounds extremely controversial to me (and apparently to lots of others).

I think this means if the TSA posts a web page explaining what they’re blocking access to and why, they’ll have to make sure their employees can’t see it.
