Blogger Bill of Rights with Rep. Hensarling on BlogTalkRadio

Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas will join Pajamas Media blogger and BlogTalkRadio host Fausta, to talk about his Bloggers’ Bill of Rights, earmarks, and taxes today at 11am ET.

Hensarling Two years ago, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) issued regulations that protected bloggers from being hampered by certain campaign finance laws. Under these regulations, bloggers cannot be considered to have made a contribution or expenditure on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate simply because they link to campaign websites or write about the positions of federal candidates. Additionally, blogs are treated as any other publication under the general media exemption from most campaign finance restrictions. Without such protections, bloggers could be subject to various limitations and reporting requirements under campaign finance law.

Here more today from Rep Hensarling with Fausta.

Chris Anderson of Wired and The Long Tail on BlogTalkRadio

The editor-in-chief of Wired Magazine talks transparency on Media 2.Open today.

Chris Anderson, author of the book and blog The Long Tail, joins John C. Havens on Media 2.Open today at 2:30pm ET to discuss transparency in the business world.

Oversimplified, The Long Tail theory says:

When consumers are offered infinite choice, the true shape of demand is revealed. And it turns out to be less hit-centric than we thought. People gravitate towards niches because they satisfy narrow interests better, and in one aspect of our life or another we all have some narrow interest (whether we think of it that way or not).

BlogTalkRadio understands and adds content to The Long Tail every day, to the tune of three to four-hundred shows a day produced by citizen broadcasters to satisfy those underrepresented niches.
