Bill O'Reilly er.... um... SHUT UP!

In his latest endeavors to be "fair and balanced" in pursuit of the fine history of American censorship... er... ah, free speech, Bill O'Reilly is bringing legal pressure to bear on a blogger for linking to one of his columns online.

According to Lawrence Lessig, these threats have no basis in the law, thanks to a Ticketmaster ruling concluding that Hypertext Linking does not violate Copyright.

Stay Free! the blog that the headline links to is asking bloggers to show their support by linking to O'Reilly columns.
