Well, it looks like internet censorship has hit another blow to freedom. Wonder who the next group to be censored is going to be? Might help in the 2010 elections. And if that's a success, then it'll hit the big stage in 2012.

Minnesota orders ISPs to blacklist gambling sites

The state of Minnesota has handed Internet providers a 7-page blacklist of gambling Web sites that they're supposed to prevent customers from accessing, a move that raises First Amendment and technical concerns.

"We are putting site operators and Minnesota online gamblers on notice and in advance," said John Willems, a Minnesota Department of Public Safety official, in a statement. Companies that received the list of off-limits Web sites -- which was made public on Thursday -- include AT&T, Comcast, Qwest, and Sprint/Nextel.
