More From the Globe on the Bulte Fundraising Issue

20 Jan ’06

Ivor Tossell writes in the Globe today about the role of blogging in the Bulte fundraising controversy (I wish I’d expressed these ideas so elegantly in my recent post on the topic):

But the copyright fundraising flap shows off the Web’s best potential. It gave experts a platform for non-partisan arguments, backed up by primary sources (you can go read Bulte’s reports, draft legislation, and even party invites on-line). It was almost entirely bereft of ad-hominem sleaze. It opened up lines of communication with the mainstream press, and not just to bash it. It advanced an idea, not just an agenda.
