2. This is one reason
Why I, as a librarian who teaches college students about evaluating Web information, no longer recommend federal Web sites as trusted information sources. And as a former editor for federal research agencies, this reinforces my decision to leave prior to the 2000 election (which we now know was a selection).

This sort of interference began almost as soon as the Bushistas got to DC, with the purging of all information on the Education Department Web site that did not adhere with the No Child Left Behind effort. It's continued in other agencies as well, and other fronts (e.g., the closing of almost all the EPA libraries and serious cuts to HHS grant funding).
