  •  that man is full of straw (none)
    Nowhere has Markos advocated that the internet be completely unregulated.

    •  He is completely dismissing what she is saying (none)
      and she is making the point that the internet needs some regulation. Therefore, kos seems to be advocating unregulated internets. She didn't say that bloggers should not have the media exemption.

      •  wrong on both counts (none)

        If the statute is to survive, two principles must emerge. First, the class of bloggers entitled to be treated as "news media" -- and thus exempt from most campaign finance laws -- must be limited.

        Black/Moulitsas/Stoller written comments
        As noted in the introduction, these regulations go much further than is necessary to comply with Judge Kollar-Kotelly's order. Her grievances stemmed from the absence of regulations regarding coordinated communications and did not reach into other substantive areas. Therefore, proposed regulations amending 11 CFR §§ 109.21 and 109.37 regarding coordinated communications are within the proper scope of the regulations, though we would further encourage the FEC to amend 11 CFR § 109.21(c) to exempt all dissemination, republication, etc., of campaign materials on the Internet generally.
