Law firms as tough on blogs as the CIA?

March 22, 2006

The CIA is putting the clamps on blogs. From USNews:

The CIA’s Publications Review Board is sending out terse reminders to agency veterans reminding them of the rules requiring that any writings–even blogs–must first get agency approval. Among those getting the warning is outspoken blogger and ex-agency man Larry Johnson, who smells censorship. ‘It’s very selective,’ says Johnson, who has been critical of the CIA’s failure to defend outed ex-spook Valerie Plame.

I can understand the CIA vetting agent content. But could clamping down on open lawyer discussion be the reason we do not see more large law firm blogs?
