Bray v. Foley

Via InstaPundit I see that Hiawatha Bray, a Boston Globe tech writer, is taking on Linda Foley (this is the newspaper guild head who said the mililtary targeted journalists in Iraq, for those who don't keep up with the blow-by-blow of every tempest in a blogspot).

Bray, you may recall, engaged in some pro-Bush/anti-Kerry blog commenting last year, which caused a bit of a stir. Dan Kennedy's post on this criticized the above-linked item from Media Matters and also included a statement from someone at the Globe saying Bray had agreed to stop participating in the political blogs ("Mr. Bray was instructed to discontinue any such postings, and to our knowledge he complied," is the quote from someone named Al Larkin).

Does this latest foray into the blogosphere violate such an agreement, and will Media Matters et al jump on Bray again? I don't know, I just provide the background.
