    Department Of Homeland Security Compiling Database Of Journalists And 'Media Influencers'

    [T]he United States government, traditionally one of the bastions of press freedom, is about to compile a list of professional journalists and "top media influencers," which would seem to include bloggers and podcasters, and monitor what they're putting out to the public.

    What could possibly go wrong? A lot.

    CIA probably wonít share their list, so DHS needs to make their own
