FTC to regulate blogs

It begins:

The Federal Trade Commission will try to regulate blogging for the first time, requiring writers on the Web to clearly disclose any freebies or payments they get from companies for reviewing their products.

Have you ever seen a product review in a typical print magazine which disclosed how much money that product's manufacturer spends on ads in that magazine (or perks for the author)?

Hat tip: Instapundit.
