As Jonathan writes today, Nancy Pelosi’s new blog, “The Gavel,” is “a boon to C-SPAN junkies who can’t watch TV during work hours.” Just think, more accessible wonk, and first-hand. Well, some are less excited than others. DailyKos has the press release that the Republican Study Committee spammed the media with today. “The RSC spoke with C-SPAN today, who confirmed that these videos violate C-SPAN copyright/trademark of the House proceedings.” I’m not sure I would expect anything less from the far right wing of the party. Stay tuned. I’m sure there’s more to come.
