First Amendment, Logical Fallacies, and More Stuff

Good stuff over at Marty Andrade's blog, including the ever-popular logical fallacy.

Also, Derek Jensen writes to point out that the NCAA revoking press credentials from its baseball championship for live-blogging is probably not a First Amendment violation. It is also probably not going to lower the value of the national television rights for college baseball, which remains at $1.50.

Thanks for the link,

I couldn't believe the live-blogging deal. That's going to be hard to enforce as technology improves. A lot of us can get internet wherever we get cell phone service.

In fact, a lot of us can blog with our cellphones/blackberries. Unless you confiscate all of those items it will be impossible to keep people from posting stuff "live" onto a blog.

Yes, but it is not a First Amendment violation. If ABC has the rights to the BCS title game, can Fox bring a webcam into the press box and do its own broadcast?
