Bloggers: to arms!
Thursday, March 3rd, 2005
The Federal Election Commission is mulling regulating blogs, notes Michael Bassik. An FCC member suggests bloggers’ links might be regulated: “Would a link to a candidate’s page be a problem? If someone sets up a home page and links to their favorite politician, is that a contribution? This is a big deal, if someone has already contributed the legal maximum, or if they’re at the disclosure threshold and additional expenditures have to be disclosed under federal law.”
So we’ll be regulating the ability of American citizens to express themselves online.
