BLOGGERS HIT THE BIG TIME….Trish Wilson emails today to call my attention to the OPEN Government Act, a bipartisan bill designed to “promote accessibility, accountability, and openness in Government.” Among its other worthy features, this bill defines all the fine folks who write on the internet ? including bloggers, apparently ? as “representative[s] of the news media,” at least as it applies to making FOIA requests. Hooray for us!
