A Web Breakthrough

Speaking of the debates, an alliance of conservative and liberal bloggers are touting ABC’s and NBC’s decisions to “liberate” debate coverage — meaning their video will be free for posting around the Web, YouTube, etc. without fear of copyright infringement.

“ABC and NBC deserve praise for leveling the playing field–allowing everyday people to share key debate moments on blogs and YouTube just like the networks choose moments to show on the air,” said Adam Green, who leads media reform and Internet freedom campaigns for MoveOn.org Civic Action. “It’s good for our democracy that TV networks are removing themselves as the sole deciders of which debate moments can have a life online.”

Mike Krempasky, co-founder of RedState.com, said, “These networks are not only embracing new technology, but new communities. Their willingness to loosen the reins a bit will go a long way towards improving our politics as more and more people get involved.”

CBS has yet to release its video. CNN has. And Fox has declined.
