FEC Tackles Internet Politics Today

The FEC "plans to take what one of its commissioners termed a 'relatively nonintrusive' approach to regulating political campaigns on the Internet," the Washington Post reports. "The agency, which is beginning to consider how and whether to restrict blogs, e-mail and other online activities, released a document describing the legal issues it plans to tackle over the next several months."

The agency will discuss proposed rules for Internet activities in today's open meeting.

Meanwhile, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) says blogs deserve the same constitutional protection as any other media outlet.
