Committee To Protect Bloggers Closes

Filed as News on June 3, 2009 3:09 pm

This is sad news indeed. Founder Curt Hopkins is closing Committee to Protect Bloggers, as a result of his need to focus on finding new work.

Rather than look either inept, or like we can’t be bothered to fulfill our function, we would rather close down the organization with the hopes, however slim at this time, that we can restart it when things are better for us.

The site will remain online for now. I guess it is moot to hope for someone stepping in with a big wad of cash to keep Committee to Protect Bloggers rolling. It fills a gap and is an important source about the situation for bloggers across the world.

    I hope there’s someone who is brave enough to continue this site to protect bloggers.
