Freedom of the Press?
The harassment of the press has got to stop.
The government is now aiming to define who a member of the press is. Senator Diane Feinstein would insist that to be a 'real reporter' the person should draw a salary.
That cuts out bloggers and small internet news (like The Young Turks, Alex Jones, or iReporters). Every day the government does something new to chip away at our freedoms.
It may not feel like a lot each time, but added up- I do not like where this is going.
The partner of the reporter Glenn Greenwald was held at Heathrow airport for 9 hours. For no reason other than he was the partner of the reporter who leaked a story about secret surveillance in the U.S. I am imagining our government put him on some sort of list.
If we all get together and say "I leaked it!" Can they come after all of us? I think we should try.
