Federal shield law on the way?

Journalists will breathe a sigh of relief if the federal shield law — which has already passed in the House by a veto-proof margin — also passes in Senate. Particularly in our era of corporate media, with profits so often prioritized over reporting, it’s relieving to see politicians doing something that will help journalists, whistleblowers and, ultimately, the state of our democracy.

I’m thrilled to see this issue receive such bipartisan support, particularly given the (not-so?) heavy hitters mobilizing against it and the divisive, partisan nature of Washington these days.
