First I've heard of this.

There's a change.org petition about that too. But I haven't seen anything much in the media. Not that I pay much attention anyway.

The media is too obsessed with every shiny 140 character nonsensical tweet to pay any attention to the real and devastating policy changes being quietly implemented by that man behind the curtain.
