Report: Obama Readying 'Stepped-Up' Internet Policing

"The Obama administration is preparing a stepped-up approach to policing Internet privacy that calls for new laws and the creation of a new position to oversee the effort, according to people familiar with the situation," The Wall Street Journal writes.

And a task force is being set up "to help transform the Commerce Department recommendations into policy," sources tell the Journal. It's being headed by Cameron Kerry, brother of Massachusetts Democratic Sen. John Kerry.
