One item from the first link is of particularly note:
"Previously established guidelines within the administration say that data could only be collected under authorization set forth by written code, but the new provisions in the NOC’s write-up means that any reporter, whether someone along the lines of Walter Cronkite or a budding blogger, can be victimized by the agency."
The reason it's noteworthy is that it identifies any poster as a "reporter," thereby creating a legal precedent with respect to the definition of the term "Press."
I'll have to keep this directive in my pocket should law enforcement ever tell me I'm not a member of the "press." I can respond, "according to the Department of Homeland Security, via their National Operations Center (NOC)’s Media Monitoring Initiative, I most certainly am a member of the press."
The flipside, however, is that one's honest comments intended for friends can be abused so as to railroad them.
