VICE Reports on Free State Project and NH Nanobrewer Freedoms

VICEIt’s not VICE’s first time reporting on a Free State Project participant.  They last covered Free Keene blogger Rich Paul facing down decades in prison for selling cannabis.  Now, they turn to alcohol in this report on deregulating nanobreweries featuring FSP participant and early mover Kevin Bloom.

In addition to being the founder of the new Area 23 nanobrewery, Kevin is also the political director for the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance.  Here’s his interview with VICE.

Misleading Headlines Adorn AP Robin Hooding Story

Robin Hood of KeeneThis piece by AP reporter Lynne Tuohy is being published all over and the headlines vary from misleading to acceptable.

For instance, the worst headline of them all is WCVB‘s, which says, “Keene’s parking meter ‘Robin Hooders’ must back off.” When the people calling themselves “the city” tell you you must do something, generally that means it must be done, or else violence will be used against you. In this case, that’s not at all what has happened. The city of Keene folks WANT Robin Hooders to “back off” and they’ve filed a lawsuit to try to force us to. “We want” is very different from “You must”.

The article itself is more honest, and reveals that in fact the city lost their case at superior court and is appealing to the NH supreme court. Obviously, the author of the article does not choose the headlines, that would be one of the editors of the paper. Thanks to Lynne and the AP for the coverage, despite the awful, seemingly default headline.

Here’s a sampling of headlines that various news outlets chose for this story:

BitcoinJust a couple of weeks ago, Bitcoin Magazine ran a story about New Hampshire’s lively Bitcoin scene. Prior to that, Bitcoin Magazine filed a video report from the bitcoin-accepting Stone Farm in Fitzwilliam and reported on this year’s Liberty Forum in Nashua.

Now Cryptocoin Magazine has published a story by Evander Smart that asks, “Is New Hampshire the most Bitcoin-friendly place in the United States?” What do you think?
