Video: Tracking the Federal Shield Law



A top public policy priority for Newspaper Association of America is enactment of a federal shield law that would enable journalists to protect confidential sources when subpoenaed in criminal and civil cases. In the wake of recent scandals involving the Justice Department’s secret seizure of phone records that swept in communications of more than 100 Associated Press journalists, the monitoring of Fox News reporter James Rosen’s personal e-mail and cell phone records, and the continued all out assault on Wikileaks this legislation is critical to protecting the free flow of information and the public’s right to know.
