Odd – in one day, two examples relating to squashed speech and the RNC:

The Republican National Committee is telling television stations not to run MoveOn ads that criticize President Bush. The RNC is trying to convince network execs that the ads are illegally funded, while MoveOn says that “The federal campaign laws have permitted precisely this use of [soft] money for advertising for the past 25 years.”

Meanwhile, Britain’s top scientific adviser David King warned his government that global warming was probably a greater threat to global security than terrorism — referring to Bush’s policies on climate change. In response, Tony Blair’s private secretary warned King to “limit his contact with the media” and “to decline any interview requests from British and American newspapers and BBC Radio.”
