Navy, Marine Corps Denied Access to Fox News' Web Site
Members of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps were denied access Friday to Fox News' Web site, a Navy spokesman confirmed to FoxNews.com.

Lt. Justin Cole, a spokesman for the Navy, said that he wasn't able to access that site along with other news sites, including NewYorkTimes.com. But access to other news Web sites was not being blocked.

"There's got to be some type of issue with NMCI," Cole said, referring to the Navy Marine Corps Internet. Cole said he was checking with the IT department in control of NMCI.

When members tried to go to 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."

Censorship. What are they trying to hide?

You have one voice, use it.

Says they don't think it's intentional.

Members of the U.S. Navy were denied access Friday to Fox News' Web site, a Navy spokesman confirmed to FoxNews.com.said, referring to the Navy Marine Corps Internet. Cole said he was checking with the IT department in control of NMCI.

When members tried to go to 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."

Marines at the Pentagon do have access to FoxNews.com. But Navy members stationed in Europe have also been denied access, according to an anonymous source.

The server for the Navy and Marines branches off at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia.

Maj. Carl Redding, a Marine spokesman in the Pentagon, said he has access to FoxNews.com but added that it's not surprising to him that folks in the Navy are being blocked and getting an error message. Although the Marines work on a different network, Redding said they get similar error messages all the time when trying to log onto legitimate Web sites.

"It's the nature of the network," Redding told Fox News, adding that he believes the blocked access is not intentional.
