Online politicking receives temporary reprieve

CNET reports on US Online politicking's temporary reprieve:

"Political bloggers would continue to be exempt from most campaign finance laws, according to highly anticipated rules that federal regulators released Wednesday.

The Federal Election Commission also proposed that online-only news outlets and that even individual bloggers should be treated as legitimate journalists and immune from laws that could count their political endorsements as campaign contributions. "

I have been trying get more information on this issue in the Zambian context. If you have any relevant information relating to this topic, feel free to share it.
