FCC chief blasts Russia for passing Internet censorship bill

http://j.mp/MnaRMQ  (The Hill)

   Julius Genachowski, chairman of the Federal Communications Commission
   (FCC), issued a statement late Wednesday slamming Russia for passing a
   bill that would allow the government to blacklist certain websites.
   He said the country had moved in a "troubling and dangerous
   direction."  "The world's experience with the Internet provides a
   clear lesson: a free and open Internet promotes economic growth and
   freedom; restricting the free flow of information is bad for
   consumers, businesses, and societies," he said.
