Claude Raines

Shocked, just shocked.

I once had a short (came at the end of the conversation and thus we didn't really have a chance to flesh it out) debate about bloggers and the FEC with a journalist. While it was fairly short, it still took fairly long for me to explain that whatever ethical issues we might think are important that what he was talking about involved placing requirements on "bloggers" which weren't required of anyone in the media. His position seemed to be that, by definition, the respectable media didn't have these problems.
