Запишут в блогеры?

Вчера Госдума приняла во втором чтении законопроект "о блогерах" ( подробный анализ тут), который приравнивает по обязанностям авторов  записей в соц. сетях, блоги которых читает более 3 тысяч посетителей ( или посещений- тут понимание разнится) в день к СМИ. Так как закон может и меня коснуться наверное, попытался  сформулировать свое к нему отношение, но не смог. С одной стороны, как бывший редактор и журналист, я на автопилоте уже пишу так, чтобы тексты не подпадали под нарушения законодательства о СМИ, а если они при этом и затрагивают чье-то самолюбие, то  судебных перспектив не имеют. Это не столько профессиональная привычка, сколько определенная культура публичного выражения. С другой, если уж и при этом на меня регулярно пишут  жалобы в комиссию по депутатской этике и измученные коллеги, постоянно реформируя ее нормы, дореформировались до логики, что пьяный депутатский дебош в ресторане- не является предметом рассмотрения такой комиссии, а запись в блоге депутата- является, то чего ждать от нового закона наших федеральных законотворцев?

Очевидно, что основная цель законопроекта- обуздать неконтролируемую политическую интернет-публицистику, лишив ее возможности и функции быть "не только коллективным пропагандистом и агитатором", но прежде всего- "организатором", разного рода несанкционированных  акций, флэшмобов и тому подобное. Не внушает и требование "проверять достоверность", которое может лишить форы оперативность интернет-журналистики по сравнению с официальными СМИ, не говоря уж о скрываемых персонажами интернет-расследований фактах. Короче, инициатива спорная, особенно если вспомнить, что огромная часть блогосферы пишет под вымышленными именами, а ответственность за разного рода ущерб в ГК и так существует.

PS кстати напомним, что у журналистов и СМИ помимо обязанностей есть и права, например, запрашивать и получать информацию, присутствовать на различных мероприятиях и пресс-конференциях, и даже проходить в места ЧП и массовых беспорядков, их тоже блогерам предоставят :) ?

Why Russia always gets its land back? Письмо американским депутатам и президенту Обаме

Why Russia always gets its land back?

Dear Americans and American parliamentarians, Mr. President Barack Obama!

Over the last thousand years our people have been building the Russian state , and finally teamed up at the huge area from the Baltic to the Pacific Ocean and from the Arctic Ocean to the Black Sea and the Caucasus. During these ten centuries Russian managed to build a huge state , defending their freedom and independence in countless trials. Crimea became a part of Russia before than the U.S. got its Constitution and Kiev is called "the mother of Russian cities " as the first capital of the Russian state since the IX century, so 6 centuries before Columbus discovered America . The territory of Ukraine is not the territory of a foreign country once attached to Russia, this is Russia itself, its historically native land, home of Russian people, because Russian history began more than 1000 years ago from here, from Kiev.

Rejected by separatists and foreign invaders Russian territories always came back to Russia , it should be remembered. Thus, a large part of modern Ukraine , cut off from Russia in the Middle Ages , voluntarily returned to Russia in 1654 , 135 years before the first U.S. president, in the year of the coronation of Louis XIV. Not the revolution , neither the first or second world war managed to destroy our country and the Russian nation, and the political regimes only changed the name of Russia - Russia , the Russian Empire , the Soviet Union , the Russian Federation ... The Russians have been cultivating this land for centuries. The land that now you call alien to us, using the terms " annexation " and " invasion" . Most of the Ukraine being a part of Russia for centuries was called Novorossia and Malorossia which means "the New Russia" and "the Small Russia" , the names speak for themselves, saying that these territories were developed by the Russians . Take a look, everything that you see there is made by the Russians - cities, factories , monuments, there are Russian graves everywhere. Remember the story : who liberated this land from the aggression of the Nazis during the World War II ?

Now think , what is 23 years in millennial history of Russia ? In 1991 , despite the decision of the Soviet Union referendum of March,17 in 1991 , where 77.85 % voted for maintaining a single state , the separatists in the leadership of several regions proclaimed (against the will of people) , formation of independent states of Ukraine, Belarus , the Russian Federation , Kazakhstan, Georgia and so on and removed Gorbachev from the government. It's the same thing as if the governors of Florida, California or Pennsylvania suddenly announced themselves as individual states against the will of the American nation. Would it perturb you, the Americans , if 23 years after Florida would ask to take it back? Are you resented by the unification of Germany , divided for 50 years? Most of the people of this country, the country that speaks for reunification today, are compatriots with the current Russian citizens, participants of that referendum of 1991 about the single state of the USSR , who were deceived by the separatists Kravchuk and Yeltsin, that betrayed Gorbachev and betrayed all the people. They defend their right to return home. Why do you call the separatists those who want to combine the former state that existed for centuries again , but you don't call the separatists those who broke it apart 23 years ago ?

Those processes that are taking place around the return of Russian territories separated from it by the separatists is the restoration of the divided nation , separated Russian people and Russia in its historical territories that existed in our country for centuries. The Russians don't annex anything from foreign countries . We take back what is ours . Look through the history books and open your eyes - this land has been Russian for 300 , 400, 500 , 1000 years. And what happens is the overthrow of separatists and unification with the Great Russia, according to the will of people , which was ignored 23 years ago . This is a democracy , the union of the Russians , do not get involved in it. Russia will not go beyond its historical borders , but no one can stop a natural desire of the divided nation to be together in one state.

Prof. Matveev Mikhail, deputy of the Samara Regional Duma
