FCC Passes New Regulation Requiring Bloggers to Disclose Free Gifts or Paid Endorsements

Wow. I wish …

Well folks. It’s official. If a blogger gets free gifts or gets paid to endorse a product they have to disclose it.

Okay. Let me “fess” up.

Unfortunately, no one has given me anything … or paid me anything. Bummer.

Usually, I bitch and moan about a product or service. In the process, I may “inadvertantly” mention someone or some business that offers the same product or similar service but actually does it with more integrity based on my experience with that product or service. Nothing ulterior, nothing hidden, no freebies, nothing paid for … except by me … just my personal experience.

So … FCC … go eat a weenie … I mean hot dog. And leave me alone to bitch and moan in my own little corner of the blogosphere.

DISCLOSURE: No one paid me to write this … and No Freebies!!!!!!!

  1. I’m with you Earl, but I can’t pay you either.

    Silly stuff, but I guess if they really stop the fake claims it might help. Oh wait! It’s the Feds we’re talking about.

    • LOL!!!

      I had to laugh at your punch line, Chuck: “It’s the feds …”

      I agree with the principle too. It’s just the implementation that gives me cause for concern too.

      Great to hear from you.

      Earl
