Politico Threatening Conservative Blogger with Lawsuit

The Politico is threatening blogger Stephen Gutowski with legal action to wrest control of his domain on trademark infringement grounds.

Gutowski — full disclosure: he serves as the content editor for the Media Research Center’s — gives readers details and offers his argument for why the claim by Politico is specious here at his blog.

You can catch Gutowski live on’s “The B-Cast” Web program at 5:15 p.m. EDT by clicking this link or watching the video embedded below the page break:
