Blocked: University Of Miami Wi-Fi Network Temporarily Banned Trump's Website, But Not Clinton's

So, we had CNN editing Trump tweets, where they removed the word “crooked” when referring to Hillary Clinton. HLN, CNN’s sister network, blurred a pro Trump t-shirt worn by a retired police officer who saved a baby from a hot car. And the PBS NewsHour decided to clip portions of their interview with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, where she went after Clinton for her position on trade, namely the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Now, we have a Donald Trump’s campaign website being blocked, but not Hillary Clinton’s by the Wi-Fi network at the University of Miami. The school said it was blocked due to malicious activity, but have since restored access (via Miami Herald):

The site you are attempting to visit was found to be unsafe or pose harm to your system and/or device,” said the alert message that popped up instead.

No such problem arose for users who went to hillaryclinton.com.

The problem was identified late Friday on Twitter by the UM College Republicans.

[…]

Alerted to the problem, a UM spokeswoman said the university’s information technology problem would investigate. A few hours later, the university issued a statement saying UM’s network had automatically blocked the site after detecting “malicious activity.” The school has since manually “whitelisted” donaldjtrump.com so that it is once again accessible.

[…]

"Further investigation determined a hosting service for the Trump website had the malicious activity, not the Trump website itself."

This very well could be an issue that isn’t related to liberal bias that infests college campuses. But don’t try telling that to Trump supporters—and I’m a tad skeptical given the vicious anti-Trump sentiment that is exhibited by the Left.
