French do something worthwhile...

...for a change. The AP reports that Reporters Without Borders sees bloggers in nations such as China and Iran as the only autonomous source of reporting available from those countries. So they've published a guide, the "Handbook for Bloggers and Cyber-Dissidents," which was financed in part by the French Foreign Ministry. The purpose of the guide is to help bloggers in these countries maintain their annonymity, and thus, their safety and ability to report. Do you think our own State Department would fund such a thing without a terrible internal battle?

Which reminds me-with McCain-Feingold kicking in against blogs, where do I get my copy?
