FEC Ruling

From Wired, the FEC has ruled that blogging is not covered under campaign finance laws. Well, I suppose that is less bad. At least we can legally continue our tradition of dissing both major party candidates during silly season.

"The law was never intended to regulate private citizen communication on the internet," said Commission Vice Chairman Robert D. Lenhard.

Unless the communication is paid for, or comes by way of certain private citizens acting on behalf of their commercial interests.

"There will be no second class citizens among members of the media," Toner said.

Everyone is equal, members of the media are more equal than others.
