Obama still doesn't feel there are adequate consumer protection.  He may still veto this.

I'm not sure about the 'media blackout' bit.  I think it's easy to find info on this if wanted.

The House were always going to pass CISPA, just like they passed SOPA. The Senate is where it'll be stopped.

If it get's serious - as you surf your way through the Internet, you'll start running into these:

is it front page news? is it one of the "head line articles" on the scrolling news programmes?
No?
Then the media isn't talking about it beyond the perfunctory.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

So, that is what qualifies as 'media blackout' nowadays?

That's a pretty weak argument.

  • it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

It will be a disaster for the internet if it passes.
