Widely known as the “bloggers law,” the new Russian measure specifies that any site with more than 3,000 visitors daily will be considered a media outlet akin to a newspaper and be responsible for the accuracy of the information published.Pretty sad that such a thing, the underlined part, has to be told. I think not a few US outlets ought to be held to such standards. Can you imagine if the NY Times, Time Inc, etc. were held legally responsible for their mis-reporting on Ukraine?
Besides registering, bloggers can no longer remain anonymous online, and organizations that provide platforms for their work such as search engines, social networks and other forums must maintain computer records on Russian soil of everything posted over the previous six months.[My underlines]
