    The government can only place restrictions on websites in a way that is neutral to the viewpoint or subject matter of the websites.

    So just because they can not have internet at all doesn't mean that they can deny access to website that espouse liberal opinions, or even websites that express opinions on politics, altogether.

    If what has been described is true, this is a classic and indisputable violation of Free Speech.

    •  They blocked at least one Republican blog (0+ / 0-)

      Heck, they may have blocked all blogs (or attempted to), whether or not they were related to politics or not.  This may be more about blogs in general than politics.

      I see nothing here that indicates bias, unless somebody can find a right wing/Republican blog (Fox News and Drudge and GOP.com are not blogs) that is not blocked.

        Wow, what're we going to ask for next? "Please sir, can we have some more gruel?"

        But what's interesting is there's no problem allowing state workers to access the Republican Party of Kentucky or Fox News or Drudge Report or at least one conservative Kentucky blog.
