Timely article on the hot topic of speaking to the media about Bitcoin.

Quote
However, being against dissenting viewpoints on regulation, being unwilling to confront any form of taxation, or being anti-financial privacy does not make one a neutral bitcoin advocate as some have suggested. Those positions are the worst sort of bias because from the outset they wrap ideology in what is politically correct and easily digestible by the masses. Furthermore, it can be disingenuous and manipulative.

Perpetuating an incorrect observation that the Foundation selected the bitcoin.org Press List, a commenter named Milly Bitcoin left this comment on the Forbes site:

"Obviously the Bitcoin Foundation is political as they are now debating who should be listed as media contacts on the Bitcoin.org web site. If the Foundation wanted to stay nonpolitical they would not be posting media contacts and arguing over who should be listed. If they wanted to be transparent they would allow the public to read their discussion board instead of making it members only."

I commented after Milly explaining the situation.

Founding Director, Bitcoin Foundation
