McCAIN ATTACKS UNLIMITED WEB ACCESS
On Friday, Republican presidential candidate John McCain told a town meeting at the Greenville Public Library that libraries and schools that offer unlimited Internet access to children should not receive federal money. He suggests libraries use web filtering devices to limit access to sexually explicit material. When a mother or father drops their child off at the library they are entrusting the welfare of their child with the librarian, he said. McCain disagreed with the American Library Association assertion that unlimited Internet access was free speech.
