Today’s large font headline on Drudge screams “Shield Law Sponsor: Bloggers ‘Probably Not’ Considered Journos”. Note that the bill in question is not law yet and the words of the sponsor aren’t particularly binding in the absence of express language in the bill.
I wish I had noticed where Drudge plastered last Thursday’s headline (which he linked) that the Delaware Supreme Court, whose opinion is law at least in Delaware, ruled that bloggers can remain anonymous in most circumstances. I doubt it was plastered as largely.
He reported the adverse-to-bloggers decision in Apple vs. Does but I looked for and never found the report that the California appellate court is willing to hear argument about whether to overturn it.
Maybe I’m being too hard on Matt Drudge but let’s not forget his famous quote:
In the end I really don’t care what I’m called, as long as it’s not blogger.
