  •  This is a lousy proposal. (9+ / 0-)

    We defeated these ideas in 2005-06 before the FEC, and I'm appalled that they're still out there.

    Bloggers depend on credibility. Good bloggers disclose. Lousy ones won't care about the law. Government has no competence to enforce "the ethics of journalists," and doesn't demand the WSJ list all the folks paying its opinion writers.

      when I have been paid, as I was by the NEA for my posts from the Stop the Greed Agenda Bus Tour I have disclosed it

      when I have a personal relationship or a political commitment, I have disclosed that

      I do not need laws to tell me to do the right thing
