Crackdown on blogging


1. A judge has ordered the FCC to apply the horrendous McCain-Feingold act to bloggers also. That means if you commit the horrendous crime of linking to a political candidate’s site, you’ll be subject to a bunch of crappy regulations or fined. Someone needs to introduce our government to the first amendment.

2. Three websites have been ordered to “divulge their sources to Apple Computer”:http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/1875.html. Apple successfully argued that because they are not “legitimate journalists,” they are not afforded safe harbor protections.

Is there a provision where we can kick stupid judges out on their can and bar them from courtrooms? Is this obscure blog going to get gagged?
