i urge all bloggers and those who care about the new media to read this post by Kevin at Wizbang, regarding our right to Freedom of Speech as bloggers, and to sign the Online Coalition letter to Federal Election Commission chairman Scott E. Thomas.
i've signed the letter, along with 1,791 others the time of this writing.
Haven't heard about the controversy? Read Leigh's post, "The McCain/Feingold crackdown on free speech" and James' post "And so it begins. . ." from earlier this month.
The Online Coalition letter is a "cross-partisan" effort, put together by bloggers from across the political blogosphere. Liberal blogger Markos, of Daily Kos, notes that a number of Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have also added their welcome voice to the cause of internet freedom. Where are the Republicans on this?
