Nipping The Censors In The Bud

Good news on the fight over government regulation of media mentioned yesterday:

The Senate, on a 55-43 vote, approved an amendment pushed by Sen. Robert Bennett, R-Utah, to strip a provision requiring reporting of "grass-roots" lobbying.

This amendment's success means the provisions requiring registration of "grass roots lobbying" (including blog posts) are dead -- for now.
