I am not sure of the affiliation of the author of this article, but I find it interesting nonetheless; from another forum:
forums.1fast400.com...


The Department of Commerce has issued a blanket media policy to employees of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), requiring that all requests for contact from national media be first approved by the Department, RAW STORY has learned.

I can't see anything, but it sure sounds like nazi party tactics to me.




This is not PTS. Let us keep the conversation focused of ATS material.

Especially after a very accurate weather man quit his post to pursue claims of weather control

Very interesting, thanks much for the post.

I agree that the source may be slightly questionable, however after browsing around their web site a bit, I can't see that anything there is blatantly false and this story does not seem to fit the mold of a classic hoax. I would hope it is false, but sadly it remains a completely believable possibility.

perhaps he quit because he wasn't allowed to interject his theories when he was on tv...

I recall him talking about signing a clause in the contract about not being able to do that.

perhaps thats why he quit, so he could have the freedom to pursue and express to the public, he obviously didn't have that at the station he worked for.

There is nothing out of the ordinary about this. It has been a long standing rule of government employment that employees are not allowed to talk to the press about government business. The military has the same rules as does most major companies. My company has it as part of my non-disclosure agreement. I am not allowed to talk to the media about company business without permission. I am perfectly free to discuss other subjects just not company business. Most restraunts and grocery stores do not allow photos to be taken on the premisis without permission from the head office. My neice had a birthday party at a McDonalds a few years ago and part of the party was a tour. I was not allowed to take pictures during the tour.

My apologies to all for posting such a long message to begin with. I thought that as long as it was not copyrighted and as long as I did not claim to be the author, that it was acceptable. I now realize the proper etiquette and the site rules, which would be to post a link first.

JIMC5499, I'm glad you think this is normal. It's not.
NOAA, like NASA, is publicly owned, publicly funded, and they have no right to restrict media access to ANYBODY unless it has something to do with National Security. Which in this case I would speculate it does indeed have to do with National Security, primarliy the weaponization of Climate Control.

Here are links to the applicable policies at the Department of Commerce website. The NOAA is a part of the Department of Commerce

Outside Writing and Speaking; Departmental Approval
DAO 219-1

Release of News, Clearance of Speeches and Publications, and Media Coverage
DAO 219-2

Clearance of Speeches
DAO 219-05

All of these policies are dated before 1984 so they are not new.

Penalties for Violation
Relationships with Public
1. Failure to obtain any required clearance of official speech or article (See DAO 219-1).

First Offense: Written reprimand to removal.
Second Offense: 5 days suspension to removal.
Third Offense: 30 days suspension to removal.

Penalties for Violation

I am 100% certain that NASA has the same policies, but you can look those up for yourself. Something else to consider. Any government information that is not cleared for public release has an automatic security classification of Confidential. This is the lowest classification used.
