ErikTheRed (162431) writes "In an audio clip discovered by NewsBusters, then Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder advocated federal censorship of the Internet. This was in the aftermath of the Columbine High School shootings.

    None at all, except when it comes to traffic shaping, SPAM, ensuring privacy, etc.
