FTC Thinks Blogs Should Be Regulated

First off, I have never received any "goody" in return for writing a review or something positive. Ethics and all, you know.

So it is with great surprise that as a blogger, the government "generalizes" and says bloggers need to be regulated. I don't believe their premise, first off.

So is there something else afoot in Washington? This Congress and this president are "regulation" crazy. Remember, at least when it comes to firearms, gun control is not about guns, it is about control. How could "regulation" of blog content be any different?

How about this. If I am "given" information, does that mean I can't write about it? If you regulate the blogs, regulate the reporters who are regularly "given" information.

This is nuts . . .
