Amen, brother

Amen, brother: Dave Winer in the SF Chronicle: “Everybody is a journalist, or nobody is.”  

As I’ve said, free speech should protect bloggers. At the same time,
bloggers, like all media, are not free to practice slander, libel or
criminal activities. You know, freedoms come with responsibilities. That’s all the protection from bloggers we need.

Arguing (as Apple is doing) that bloggers (who, ironically, are using
Apple products) are not practicing a protected form of free speech, is,
to mix a metaphor, barking up the wrong slippery slope.
