The Federal Reserve wants to know what you are saying about it. In fact, the Federal Reserve has announced plans to identify "key bloggers" and to monitor "billions of conversations" about the Fed on Facebook, Twitter, forums and blogs. This is yet another sign that the alternative media is having a dramatic impact. As first reported on Zero Hedge, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York has issued a "Request for Proposal" to suppliers who may be interested in participating in the development of a "Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution". In other words, the Federal Reserve wants to develop a highly sophisticated system that will gather everything that you and I say about the Federal Reserve on the Internet and that will analyze what our feelings about the Fed are
Sadly, the silencing of Activistpost is far from an isolated incident. Hordes of YouTube accounts have been shut down for their political viewpoints. Quite a few very prominent alternative media websites have been censored or attacked because of what they stand for.
So why is this happening? Well, it turns out that the power of the alternative media is growing. According to a new survey by the Pew Research Center for The People & The Press, 43 percent of Americans say that they get their news on national and international issues from the Internet. Back in 1999, that figure was sitting at just 6 percent. The American people are sick and tired of getting "canned news", and they are increasingly turning to the Internet in a search for the truth.
This story is the first in a weeklong series on Gallup.com on Americans' views on the role and performance of government.
PRINCETON, NJ -- A record-high 81% of Americans are dissatisfied with the way the country is being governed, adding to negativity that has been building over the past 10 years.

Forgot to mention.
The law views the FED as a private institution, not a government agency.

dude stop trolling and get your facts straight so lets break it down for the person who cant think for himself
the federal reserve was created by the federal government via the federal reserve act by the 63rd congress of this country by the democratic majority held by the left of this country.
the federal reserve controls the entire financial wealth of said country they print money which no other bank can do.
and to sit than and whine about bankers meaning wall street where they have to live within the means of what the federal reserve dictates.
to dumb it down wall street makes money the federal reserve defines what that wealth means as per the dollar value.
and that government can pick up the phone at any given time and say we need more money so print it.
