Freedom Of The Press?

NBC asks: Would eavesdropping bill snag reporters?

Senators Mike DeWine [R-OH], Olympia Snowe [R-ME], Lindsey Graham [R-SC] and Chuck Hagel [R-NE] are under the impression that all of the current laws against disclosing classified information aren’t sufficient.

DeWine claims that this law doesn’t target reporters, when it obviously does. The only problem with the old law is that it kept interfering with the ability of the White House to misuse classified information, while not stopping reporters from reporting on illegal activities, even after they are improperly classified.

Anyone associated with, or who votes for this bill is an enemy of the First Amendment. It’s that simple, so select your representatives accordingly.
