Blachman has an op-ed in the New York Times calling for employment law protections for bloggers. Couldn't they have gotten something from Dooce or someone with real experience with this issue? Or from a professor of employment law who blogs? Granted, Blachman lacks the baggage of having posted controversial things from real life and thus cannot be subject to character assassination, but since when is he the voice of blogging and law? This op-ed could have been written by anyone who has a blog and is or has recently been employed. My respect for the media has decreased by another jot.
UPDATE: Will Baude has a more substantive comment on Blachman's proposal.
