  •  once you fall out of the press function (none)
    You fall out of the press exception.  For example, if a newspaper went beyond publishing an editorial endorsing a candidate to sending workers door-to-door to do GOTV, that would not be an allowable corporate expenditure.
    •  I can't possibly see (none)
      why a newspaper that endorses a candidate should be exempt from the laws as written, except that an otherwise nonsensical exception was carved out to protect them.  Delivering X million copies of an endorsement like that pretty clearly falls under the kind of speech that is regulated.

      In any event, I think the exception is not so clearly due to blogs.  It might be -- but it doesn't seem open and shut to me, I would expect to have to deal with these kinds of challenges.

      Is America finally suffering from Idiot Fatigue?
