    Mornin' Chez. Well I would like to see how they worded that part out in most instances that the government will notify the news agency before hand.

    If they leave that vague.....then the Politicians on both sides of the aisle in whatever Administration can just use the good OLD.....Its a Matter of National Security. To use as the lame excuse to not contact whom may be covering whatever it is the government is doing.

    I think some of this is good for Reporters. But you are Right......the Media is suppose to be the watchdog over the Government. If they can't do the job.....then get those that will.

    Which dealing with those in the media and getting them Right.....is a different sort of Problem. Although.....one that we the people can take to the Media people. Full- tilt, to get that point across to them.

    The only thing that has stopped these bastards from taking our guns I believe is there is still a tinge of fear in their hearts we'd use them...otherwise...adiós muchacho..

    Well, there are those out there doing what they can with media types. But you know how it is in a PC world and all crying out for the Law. Courts, Free Speech and all of it in play. Still.....when none listen and none can do anything about it thru legal means, and thru government. That leaves the people to make the decision.

    Which in the end.....there is no more listening to talk. As there is nothing to talk about. Action will be what does the talking then.

    Btw, they said they don't Consider Twitter and so then now they would have to re-address that issue.

    A bill has no power, not even a poorly concieved law has much life...

    I doubt news media will act complacently if this bill passes. Lawyers are at this moment designing actions.

    Normally I'd agree with you that the news media would fight such a bill..... I'm not so sure. The media is so far up Obama's ass they can taste what he has for breakfast every morning, and they want to keep a Democrat in that position - if they had their way - forever. I think SOME news media will resist, not all.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    A bill has the power of government's monopolistic use of force. What the heck are you talking about.

    In the United States, the Congress proposes ideas for new laws. A bill is a draft form of a potential, future law. If a bill is approved by both houses of Congress and the president, it becomes a law, which must be enforced and obeyed.

    It seems we already have good law to protect journalists. It's called the First Amendment.

    Now if the criminal bastards in government would enforce the First Amendment, things would be just fine.
