Cincinnati City bans blogs
The City of Cincinnati has banned employee access to blogs, despite maintaining access to racist groups, organisations advocating the overthrow of the U.S. government, cult groups, and abortion and sex education sites.
Interestingly, Brendon Cull, the press secretary for Mayor Charlie Luken, was granted an exception to the rule and allowed access to two local blogs, Cincinnati Blog and Black Cincinnati Blog.
The bans have been defended by the City as a means of promoting employee productivity, but a number of activists have accused the City of trying to censor blogs critical of Mayor.
Whether racist cult groups advocating abortion and overthrow of the US Government who maintain blogs are included as part of the ban was not disclosed.
