But This Govt. Agency Would REALLY Be Independent

Almost don’t know where to begin with this story. If this doesn’t scare the cr@p out of you, you really haven’t been paying attention. One has to wonder, do they really understand what they’re saying? (pic via AP)
Is there anyone with an IQ over room temperature who truly believes an agency like this wouldn’t be influenced by politics?  []
Bill Clinton: Create Internet agency  – “Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And he thinks the United Nations or the U.S. government should create an agency to do something about it. “It would be a legitimate thing to do,” Clinton said in an interview airing Friday on CNBC. The agency, Clinton said, would ‘have to be totally transparent about where the money came from’ and would have to be ‘independent’ because ‘if it’s a government agency in a traditional sense, it would have no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the internet.’ ‘Let’s say the U.S. did it, it would have to be an independent federal agency that no president could countermand or anything else because people wouldn’t think you were just censoring the news and giving a different falsehood out,’ Clinton said.”
