This reminds me of something I read a few weeks ago. I don't know what's become of this plan, but on June 22, 2009, on Hot Air, Ed Morrissey wrote about a plan the FTC has to...uh, looking for the right words here...mess with, harass, regulate...blogs that have ads. Seems the FTC believes bloggers are being paid thousands of dollars for a couple hundred words and accepting laptops and trips to Europe from companies who advertise on their blogs. Of course, the benevolent FTC only wants to protect the vulnerable consumer who may not realize they aren't reading a blog simply about, say, gardening, but it's a carefully crafted ad that will cause them to want to buy the garden tool that is mentioned in the blog.

 Well, thanks to Justin for writing this and to Mike for bringing it to our attention. This is one more thing I can add to my Mother of a Letter that I'll be sending to my congress critters.
