Measure to shield reporters' secret sources likely to pass - USATODAY.com

It looks like a bill that would help reporters protect their sources is going to pass easily despite opposition by the glorious leader. The bill seems to have a good left/right following, if this bill was stifled that would mean that reporters would have to divulge their sources on stories and would hinder the whistle blowers out there squealing about all the corruption going on. This should put in perspective why it is meeting such resistance from the administration and others who simply want more law to keep us in line and they sure don't need more whistle blowers out there giving us any insight.

Liberal Democrats, such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have joined conservative Republicans, such as Pence, to support the bill. Although no floor vote has yet been scheduled in the Senate, the chamber's Judiciary Committee this month approved its version of the shield bill by a 15-2 vote.
