Bloggers Testify Before Congress: Keeping Free Speech Free

By September 24, 2005General

Due to the explosion of political activity on the web (if you’re reading this, you’re a part of it), a federal court ordered the Federal Election Commission to draft regulations that would expand campaign finance rules to the Internet.

On Thursday, the House Committee on Administration held a hearing on the topic, inviting some leading bloggers to testify. RedState blogger, and one of the leaders in the blogosphere, Mike Krempasky testified on behalf of less regulation, arguing that at the end of the day, more regulation will obviously limit discourse. As Mike said in his report on RedState: “I think that those who support less regulation got the best of the day.” Let’s hope so.

Here’s a link to Mike’s testimony and here’s a link to a webcast (of course) of the hearing.
