THIS LOOKS LIKE A PHONY EFFORT BY ORRIN HATCH to back away from his inflammatory remarks about destroying people’s computers — only without actually doing so. I’m unimpressed. Meanwhile Arthur Silber is reading the tea leaves in various statements and wonders if we’ll see attempts at Internet censorship in the name of homeland security.

Probably. And Hatch’s comments make clear that even if that’s the justification that’s offered, it will really be Big Media companies calling the shots.

UPDATE: Ed Cone has some reporting on Congressional responses to Hatch’s statement.
