Members of the U.S. Navy were denied access to FoxNews.com for hours on Friday before service was finally restored shortly before noon ET, the Navy confirmed. Cdr. Danny Hernandez, a Navy spokesman, said he was unable to offer an exact reason why access to Fox News' Web site had been blocked, but he said it most definitely was a technical issue. "This was not a policy issue," Hernandez said. Fox News received e-mails from Navy personnel around the world on Friday complaining that they could not gain access to the Web site. They said they were able to view numerous other news Web sites. When they tried to access FoxNews.com, the following message appeared: "Access to this site has been denied in accordance with Navy policy to safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI." http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2010/04/16/navy-access-fox-news-web-site-blocked/ SOMEBODY clearly got through the Fox website!

The best thing that's happened this year.. Is that not like taking away the National Enquirer for a few minutes? Maybe they should be getting their news from a reliable source instead of Rupert.

"Access to this site has been denied in accordance with Navy policy to safeguard the security posture and/or to maintain the operational integrity of the NMCI." Doesn't exactly sound like a technical issue.
