SlashDot: Blogger Wins 1.5 Year Legal Battle
My favorite quote from the comments:
For some reason journalists think they are given special status by the Constitution. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Constitution does not give special status to anyone. Nor does it give anyone the freedom of speech or the press. It recognizes freedom of speech and press are natural rights. It makes it very clear that the government can not interfere with these rights. Your right to publish is as important as is the right of someone working for a newspaper. This case simply reinforces this fact.
And I would agree that most bloggers are not journalists - nor do they ever report news (or report anything that is verifiably factual & unbiased). This site however engages in personal diary (as most blogs) and journalistic reporting (I really do a lot of research and 1st reports here).
