You can make a Whitehouse.gov petitions for nearly anything. Checking Google will tell you there’s nothing in the media about a new SOPA bill for 2014.

The entire thing is fake, someone just randomly created a Whitehouse.gov petition for it, and everyone fell for it because nobody checks for sources.

If that’s true, then we can all chill out, right?

I knew this was awfully fishy. I was thinking that there was no way in which this was possible. They couldn’t even regulate that if it was real. “The internet always finds a way”, to misquote Jurassic Park.
