That is, video footage from forthcoming CNN presidential debates will be available to anyone to blog or similar.
Larry Lessig gets a lot of credit for this, as well as for a lot of stuff:

CNN to Make Presidential Debate Footage Available without Restrictions

As previously announced, CNN will team up with Hearst-Argyle's WMUR-TV and the New Hampshire Union Leader to host two presidential debates to be held in America's first primary state.

The candidates need to be held accountable for what they say throughout the election process. The presidential debates are an integral part of our system of government, in which the American people have the opportunity to make informed choices about who will serve them. Therefore, CNN debate coverage will be made available without restrictions at the conclusion of each live debate. We believe this is good for the country and good for the electoral process.

This is great news and it's reassuring to see a big meadia company doing the right thing instead of hording it's content for the wrong reasons.
