More Details on the Ruling

By Steven Taylor @ 10:04 am

The NYT has a lengthy story with more details: Supreme Court Upholds Key Parts of Campaign Finance Law

Filed under: Courts/the Judiciary

  1. I was unbelievably stunned this morning. Here is yet another example of right-wing ideologues quashing our freedom of speech. Oh, wait… my mistake.

    Actually, I am noticing on most internet media outlets that the issue getting top play is the “soft money” issue. While that is also an attack on free speech (i.e., I agree with you onthe Buckley ruling), the more direct (or plainly visible) assault is the political ad ban. Yet, I have yet to see a mainstream internet news site feature that component of the decision in either the headline or substantively in the first several paragraphs of the story. Now this may be due to the way the SCOTUS decision itself was presented, methinks that the news media is pretty happy with the ad ban.

    Anybody want to place money that on the Thursday before the ad ban is to take place before the 2004 presidential election, there will be an amazing exposé on Bush with some new shocking details (cf. sexual harrassment and Arnold in the LA Times a few months back).

  2. Oh my God! I just checked and their headline is “Flu season spreads sickness, fear.”
    (1:00 CST).

    The SCOTUS FA story is #5 under “More Top Stories” following “Psychiatrist: Malvo didn’t know right from wrong.”

  3. Well, I did blog on my flu before the BCRA thing-of course, I didn’t know about the BCRA thing until after I blogged on the flu.

    So, have you returned from your shadoqy retirement?

  4. How exactly is the ad ban going to be enforced?

    If, say, group A runs an ad criticizing candidate B five days before the election, is the TV station fined, or is the punishment directed against the group?

    Also, I will find it interesting to see what happens when a candidate, days before an election, announces a policy that outrages one particular group. Yet, this group cannot run TV ads criticizing the candidate for taking such a position. A sad day indeed.

  5. Another question: do the “issue ads” that are banned include any ads that a group like might run against Bush on the Iraq war? If so, the left should be (rightfully) outraged…

  6. Okay, it is almost 10:30 CST and I still haven’t heard nearly the coverage I had expected of this issue. What is going wrong with our country?
