Political Blogs are Exempt from Campaign Finance Laws
The US Federal Election Commission says the Daily KOSsack’s obvious liberal bias does not make it media exempt:
“The Commission has repeatedly stated that an entity that would otherwise qualify for the media exemption does not lose its eligibility because it features news or commentary lacking objectivity or expressly advocates in its editorials the election or defeat of a federal candidate.”
The term media is quite a stretch when it comes to political blogs (either the right or left) don’t you think? Source.
