Crackdown on Bloggers?

Regulating blogging -- its being talked about.

Josh Marshall comments, as does Atrios.

On a related topic, some idiot senator (redundant, I know) has proposed imposing FCC regulations on cable television. Ridiculous. The only justification for the FCC regulating broadcasters is that the the public supposedly owns the airwaves, so the government can regulate it on our behalf. (Which begs the question, then why are broadcasters able to use those public airwaves basically for free? Why aren't they charged huge licensing fees for that right?) That doesn't apply to cablecasters.
