It’s presented as a news story at the Boston Globe:  “Blue collar women see hope in Clinton.”   If you don’t believe me, look at the URL.

These are the same news people who are given special privileges in McCain-Feingold to keep campaigning after others are required to shut up.

One pro-speech-restriction blogger wrote thusly a few years ago:

The new line-drawing has a danger: it might encourage more corporations and unions to put on sham news programs or broadcast advertisements supporting or opposing a candidates for public office under the guise of sham advertising for a book or movie. For this reason, FEC regulations are only a temporary solution.

But what about when the major news media themselves put out sham news programs?
