Muzzle awards

The Boston Phoenix has handed out its 8th annual Muzzle Awards. The FBI topped the list of recipients for the awards, which go to “those who have done the most to suppress free speech and personal liberties in New England during the previous year.” (Via Blog of a Bookslut).

This year, the main threat to the First Amendment isn’t necessarily censorship (although there is still plenty of that), but, rather, the state of surveillance that has arisen in post-9/11 America.
