Freedom to access the internet

robert gibbs, presidential press secretary...
We believe in the basket of individual freedoms includes the freedom to access the Internet and the freedom to use social networking sites.

this is a statement that should be engraved and perhaps even considered as an addendum to the bill of rights... and it came from a totally unexpected source...

(h/t to marcy who concluded with the following comment...)
Gibbs did not say (and none of the reporters asked) whether this includes access to the Wikileaks site. Or whether it includes access to the Internet at broadband speeds.
