A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Wednesday, July 21, 2004 Fair and balanced update: The Federal Trade Commission has treated MoveOn.org and Common Cause's petition (which I mentioned earlier this week) with the consideration it deserves. From Commission Chairman Timothy J. Muris:
I am not aware of any instance in which the Federal Trade Commission has investigated the slogan of a news organization. There is no way to evaluate this petition without evaluating the content of the news at issue. That is a task the First Amendment leaves to the American people, not a government agency.
It looks like I will not be following suit against The New York Times.
