The Web site War of the Words is releasing a week-by-week 'documentary' of the '101st Fighting Keyboards'. The Flash movie chronicles the post-9/11 rise of the hawkish right-wing blogging community, largely in their own words. The film is an obvious parody and uses limited quotes from the published blogs themselves. My guess is that this is standard protected activity, even down to the use of cartoonish voices to read out some of the quotes. it does raise the question in my mind of whether someone's blog can be said to make taht author more of a public figure and thus subject to different standards for torts such as slander or libel.
