FEC To Make Rules on Blogs

I signed a letter joining the Online Coalition asking the FEC to grant bloggers the same protections afforded broadcast media, newspapers, or periodicals by clearly including them under the FEC’s “media exemption” rule. You can sign it too, if you agree.

There has been remarkable disharmony among the FEC Commissioners about all this, with good analysis from Richard Hasen and a timely report from Micah Sifry
