KY Government Bans Blog Access

Citing concerns over productivity, government agencies have denied workers access to certain blogs – mainly critical ones.
July 11, 2006

Maybe I’m sensitive to this particular story because I recently relocated to Kentucky, but it’s still disturbing to find that a state government is denying its employees access to certain Web content that is critical of its operations.

My favorite part of this story: the state government claims it banned access to blogs, pornography, and Bible study groups – three strange bedfellows indeed. From the article:

In June, the state blocked access to BluegrassReport.org after bloggers and campaign manager Mark Nickolas criticized the state’s Republican administration in a New York Times article. State officials later lifted a block on a free market Web site, saying it contained information relevant to state policy…State leaders said the ban targeted blogs and pornography, but they also blocked access to online Bible study groups.
