FEC Determines That Blogs Count As Media

Woooo! I’m Media! 

fec.jpgIn two determinations handed down yesterday, the US Federal Election Commission (FEC) found that political blogs and bloggers are media for the purposes of US Electoral Law.

The first case was a complaint against the well known left wing blog The Daily Kos. Conservative blogger John C.A.

Junk In A Box: The Madness Begins with a 300-Page AT&T Bill for iPhone

 I’d like to put my “Junk” in her “Box”… this post was mainly just for that line, but enjoy the fact that AT&T is wiping out entire forests in just a few months.

300pages.jpgFollowing this weekend’s Gore Alert post, Justine Ezarik —of JustinTV fame— has just received her first iPhone bill. Three. Hundred. Pages. See her unwrapping the package from AT&T in the video after the jump.

Come back later to find out what she got for her 300 sheets. For that price, I’d want oiled-up Greek boys—or failing that, Spanish ones. [Tasty Blog Snack] Junk In A Box: The Madness Begins with a 300-Page AT&T Bill for iPhone
