Social media has eroded young people's privacy—and advocates are trying to win it back.
Mel Mountain Du's insight:
Personally, I would argue that this is an infringement upon 1st amendment rights. Even if there is a contract. Because of course, contracts with minors are null and void, if not usually illegal. Tinker v.s. Des Moines should be upheld. The technology has changed. Civil rights have not. Instead, there should be "Cyber Education" from a young age, teaching how to have a healthy relationship with technology and online media.
Public support for the Affordable Care Act narrowly notched a new high in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, while criticism of Barack Obama’s handling of the law’s rollout – although still substantial – has eased from its peak last fall. Views hardly are enthusiastic: With the year’s sign-up deadline upon us, Americans split on Obamacare, 49 percent in support, 48 percent opposed. But that compares with a 40-57 percent negative rating after the initial failure of the federal enrollment website last November. See PDF with full results, charts and tables here. While still shy of a majority, 49 percent…
Recovering from a low of 40% following the healthcare.gov failure, the Affordable Care Act has reached a new high of 49%, just above the 48% opposed. Even Republicans and Conservatives have decreased their opposition. However, with a sample of only 1000, and an error of 3.5 points, I would question the accuracy of this poll.

Mel Mountain Du's insight:
With 7.1 million sign-ups at healthcare.gov, it appears that Obama is recovering from his disastrous opening. It is still unclear if enough young, healthy people have signed up, in order to balance the healthcare budget. What he really needs now, though, is Democratic support.
With a Twitter-savvy president and their own ailing media companies, Lloyd Grove finds the boys in the briefing room more depressed than ever.
Mel Mountain Du's insight:
2. Media correspondents and journalists deployed in the White House who's job is to cover events and announcements by the POTUS.
3. A filterless Presidency is when the Whitehouse can directly communicate with the public without a 3rd party in media.
4. Obama currently has 42.3 million Twitter followers, and 39 Million Facebook Followers.
5.The Author's concern is that the Press Corp's niche is dissapearing due to social Media such as Twitter and Facebook. This means that the President can dictate the direction of the conversation, instead of being asked questions by the media. The author fears that this will lead to the President becoming too favorably viewed and unquestioned.
6. I am a (2), only somewhat concerned. A very large part of Obama's appeal is his charisma. The Press Corp will be the most upset about it, and that is fine by me. I believe this will at least be positive in the sense that the President will have a more personal dialogue with the American Public. This is an adaptation of the Obama Administration to keep up with the times.
Five years of frustration boiled over when Sen. Dianne Feinstein flayed the CIA on the Senate floor Tuesday. She accused the agency of lying, cheating and stealing to block a 6,300-page report on the CIA’s secret prisons and torture from seeing the light of day. In essence, she said, the CIA was spying on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s...
Dianne Feinstein is a Democrat, and the senior United States Senator from the state of California. Feinstein has accused the CIA of spying on the US Congress' electronic data, and lying about it. It is newsworthy because Feinstein is a strong supporter of the CIA, and is also partly responsible for oversight of it. My opinion is that she is being hypocritical because she supports the CIA spying on other citizens, just not her or other politicians.
A split Supreme Court Wednesday strikes down limits on the total amount of money an individual may spend on political candidates, parties and political action committees but keeps limits per candidate and per committee.
McCutcheon says laws setting donation limits are a violation of the First Amendment: Free Speech and Expression. Backed by the Republican National Committee, he opposes the notion the FEC argues, that the laws are there to protect against corruption. This may very well be the next Citizens United.
This is a very intelligent and effective way for the President to endorse healthcare.gov and the Affordable Care Act, as well as gain the public's admiration. This reaches out to the young demographic, especially.
Next month, the trustees who oversee America’s most distinguished journalistic award could face their toughest decision in at least four decades. The issue before the Pulitzer Prize Board: Does it honor reporting by The Washington Post and The Guardian based on stolen government documents that are arguably detrimental to the national security...
In my opinion, Edward Snowden the whistleblower is something of an American hero. He raised concerns through the proper channels and to the administration numerous times, always being ignored. I also find it very cool that he spoke at South X Southwest, one of the biggest festivals in the world, right here in Texas. It is also interesting that he is still stuck taking asylum in Russia, with all of the Ukraine and Crimea controversy. In any case, I believe that Snowden deserves the Pulitzer prize.
