Andrew Cuomo Gloats Over Getting AOL To Do What It Already Does
from the nice-work dept
Even more ridiculous, however, is the latest announcement from Cuomo, gloating over the fact that two more ISPs, AT&T and AOL will join with the ISPs from the original announcement and cut off access to newsgroups and objectionable websites. In the case of AOL, this is especially ridiculous since it's already done this for many years. Declan McCullagh even got AOL to admit: "We have not changed any policies or procedures as part of today's announcement."
Of course, "we're doing what we've always done" doesn't make good headlines for ambitious politicians.
