TSA Rescinds Approval To Film In Response To Opt Out Campaign

•, Paul Joseph Watson
 The previous version of the TSA website (screenshot above) contained a page entitled “Taking Pictures at the Checkpoint,” which stated, “TSA does not prohibit the public, passengers or press from photographing, videotaping or filming at security checkpoints, as long as the screening process is not interfered with or slowed down.” Google’s cache of the old web page can still be viewed here.
Attempting to visit the URL now leads to a 404 page. The TSA’s admission that filming at TSA checkpoints is not prohibited has been deleted.
The change is part of a re-design of the TSA website. The new design contains no information whatsoever on travelers’ rights to film when they are at a TSA checkpoint.

The TSA’s move to rescind its “approval” to film TSA procedures, not that such approval was ever needed, is most likely a response to a newly launched national Opt Out and Film campaign set to launch during Thanksgiving week in November.

The campaign, being promoted under the banner of and radio host Alex Jones, repeatedly emphasized the fact that the TSA’s own website gave the green light for travelers to film checkpoints.
