Political Blogging

From Ad Age Magazine:

In a move that will almost certainly boost political ad spending on the Internet, the Federal Election Commission gave political blogging more freedom while tightening controls for paid advertising.

In a unanimous decision, the six-member FEC said paid political ads have to be disclosed -- but not much else -- on the Internet, unless the activity is specifically done by a campaign or a political committee. Under the new rule, e-mails, blogs, newsletters and Web sites that are not created by political committees would be exempt from most FEC regulation, a prospect that could increase their use.

Long live free speech!

this is a milestone for bloggers. It was slighty indirect to blogs as a whole but nonetheless it is good.
