Censoring web site JudicialWatch.org

It appears that even after clearing all History, etc., that Comcast is not allowing access to www.JudicialWatch.org.  Could someone please explain that?

Could be a DNS issue, have you tried clearing the DNS cache?

Probably won't help:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 75.75.75.75
Server:  cdns01.comcast.net
Address:  75.75.75.75
*** cdns01.comcast.net can't find www.judicialwatch.org: Server failed

But:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 8.8.8.8
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    judicialwatch.org
Address:  184.106.75.114
Aliases:  www.judicialwatch.org

And:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 4.2.2.2
Server:  b.resolvers.Level3.net
Address:  4.2.2.2
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    judicialwatch.org

It worked.  Thanks.  I'm curious as to why it suddently happened if you have a guess?

No problem - something similar happened to me when I switched from the Comcast DNS servers to Open DNS (though I use CloudFlare's 1.1.1.1 now because they have IPv6 support).
