It is a little like speech writers

Jim Horton asks why few care that politicians are paying bloggers openly.

It is precisely because politicians are doing this openly. Not only is this reported on an American politician’s FEC disclosure form, hiring bloggers is publicly announced. Bloggers write for the campaign’s official blog or disclose their relationship on their blog; sometimes a disclaimer statement appears at the end of each post. There is no question of sailing under false colors.
