Hasen Headline:
House Committee Hearing on Internet Campaign Finance Regulation Tomorrow
With due respect, I cite this as an example of a common ploy by the "reform" community.
The hearing tomorrow is not about campaign finance. It's about speech, and whether or not some forms of speech should be subjected to some forms of censorship.
The meme is Buckley and McConnell, good, campaign finance allowed, rather than, Talley and McIntyre, campaign censorship bad and unconstitutional.
Somebody smarter than me should come up with a name for this particular fallacy.
My picking nits at Hasen's choice of headline is minor compared to the value of the coverage he provides.
