For whatever reason (Maybe they are trying to stay informed)  Department of Homeland Security is monitoring The Drudge Report,  and other major sites.

According to a report obtained by Reuters New Service,  DHS has been "collecting information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture..."-what?  Government gobbly gook for the Feds are watching conservative leaning websites that garner significant traffic.  Drudge is one of, if not the most visited websites in the world.  They are also actively combing Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube.  This ties into our previous story about what you're putting on social networks will probably end up in some government hard drive.   Hard to say why they are doing it, except perhaps trying to gather information on people they view as non supportive of the Obama Administration.  No other President has ever allowed such snooping and eavesdropping on Americans.
