Federal Shield Law out of Committee

The Senate Judiciary Committee has sent a bill out to the full Senate to establish a federal shield law.

I still have questions about whether a shield law should protect journalists or journalism, but I’m happy something is happening here. A lot of news and industry organizations signed on in support of this.

Thanks to Al Tompkins at the Poynter Institute for the link.)
