Fix The Txagline

Dateline NBC gets the Google/DOJ thing completely wrong

The commentator makes two assertions, both based on complete misunderstandings of what's going on:
1) "The government cracking down on child porn? Good"
- As already observed, this is not about child porn. The alleged interest is "protecting children *from* pornography"

2) "The government wanting to see what you're searching for? Bad"
- Granted that I'm sure the gov't would abuse personal info if they got it, the request was about searches and the results, not for who's looking for what.

Ugh. This guy was on a freaking top-rated NBC news magazine, and obviously did ZERO research. Pitiful.

Good points, Philo. I see this somewhat amusing in the sense that a story morphed from search results to child porn so quickly, and without anyone doing their due diligance.
