[liberationtech] What goes around comes around: News website filtering now in the U.S.

But plenty of filtering already happens in the US - our libraries (by
mandate), schools, and military bases (additionally, the military blocks
plenty its sites from being accessed from outside of the US and US military
bases).

I don't see this as precedent for more filtering.  I also don't think the
New York Times is very concerned with actual facts when it comes to this
particular issue.
