Romney Favors Internet Censorship for Porn
H/T Jason Easley, PoliticsUSA
The big causes of MIM are trying to criminalize watching porn on planes, and stopping formation of new internet domains for adult content. Under Bush this group received Federal grant money, so if you are worried about internet freedom then Romney bowing their direction should set off alarms.
The radical right wing group Morality in Media blew the lid off of Romney’s secret promise to them by blabbing it to The Daily Caller,
Trueman, the president of Morality in Media, contacted the Romney campaign earlier this year about the “untreated pandemic” of Internet pornography. “They got back to us right away,” he said.
Bob Flores, another former Justice Department official who prosecuted pornographers, accompanied Trueman to an hour-long meeting with Romney foreign and legal policy director Alex Wong, Trueman said.
“Wong assured us that Romney is very concerned with this, and that if he’s elected these laws will be enforced,” Trueman told TheDC. “They promised to vigorously enforce federal adult obscenity laws.”
Trueman said he would like for Romney to speak publicly about cracking down on porn, but believes Romney avoids the subject because he “saw that Rick Santorum got beat up in the mainstream press for being so forthright.”
