Federated Media, a popular but sometimes controversial ad network for blogs, has raised another $4.5 million in funding, according to PE Hub’s read of the company’s recent regulatory filing.

Returning backers include New Enterprise Associates and Omidyar Network, according to the filing; FM has raised nearly $3 million to date, PE Hub reports. [Update: We’re told NEA didn’t invest, and its not clear why PE Hub reports this. The lead investor in FM has always been Panorama Capital, a group formerly part of JP Morgan Partners.].
