Listen as FOX News’ Megyn asks White House Deputy Press Secretary if, when someone reports (snitches) someone by email to the White House, does the White House delete the name and address of the “snitcher.” Burton will not answer. Over and over Burton refuses to answer, Burton obfuscates. Kelly asks: “Do you purge and delete the emails?
Before you leave this page, read about Megyn on Howard Stern. She had to choose which of three Fox News men she would marry, sleep with and kill. Read it here.
April 20, 2010: Readers, another reader just notified me that the Kelly-Burton video was no longer working. I apologize, and have replaced it. You should be able to see the Kelly-Burton dustup below.
Amazing thing. As Megyn asks the question, do you purge and delete the email of the sender, Burton looks to his right, points both fingers (Bill O’Reilly we need your body language expert, Tonya Reiman, to get on this one) and says “I’m glad you brought up the death panels.” What? the “death panel” discussion had nothing to do with Burton. Deception is inbred in this White House.
The Presidential Records Act requires that the White House keep every email that enters the White House. Burton knew the White House would keep the emails, the name of the emailer and the address of the emailer.
Ace of Spades reported yesterday “The White House is reversing a nine-year old policy forbidding the use of tracking cookies on those who visit federal websites.” In other words, the White House can now track you on the web. A nine year policy folks.
As Ace said “Tracking Terrorists on the Internet: Bad.
Tracking American Citizens on the Internet: Good”
“Americans rely on the information from the federal government to research politics, medical issues and legal requirements. The OMB is now asking to retain the personal and identifiable information we leave behind,” said Christopher Calabrese, Counsel for the ACLU Technology and Liberty Project. “No American should have to sacrifice privacy or risk surveillance in order to access free government information. No policy change should be adopted without wide ranging debate including information on the restrictions and uses of cookies as well as impact on privacy.”
Imagine that. Even the ACLU is stunned!
