Our hero

31 Aug
We’ve got his back: Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon has been our most consistent champion as he’s stood up for Internet freedom and ferociously opposed the Internet Blacklist Bill.
Needless to say, this has upset some people: The corporations that have been pushing the bill have been slamming him on his home turf. So we had this op-ed published in the Oregonian on Sunday to make sure Wyden knows that we’re still standing with him:

Stop the Internet Blacklist Bill

By David Segal and Patrick Ruffini

 

We are Tea Partiers and bleeding-heart liberals, we are artists and investment bankers, we represent the left and the right, and we support Senator Wyden as he comes forward, yet again, as a stalwart champion for First Amendment rights, innovation and digital security.

Congress gets back from summer break next week, and we need to gear up more opposition ASAP:
