Free Speech Alert
A Washington trial court has held that favorable comments by talk radio hosts are "in-kind" contributions to an intiative campaign to repeal a gas tax increase and, therefore, subject to the state's campaign finance laws. If this is so then most media coverage of political campaigns ought to be shut down or neutered. The case is on appeal to the Washington Supreme Court. I hope it knows free speech when it sees it.
