Who in the Wiki-Age is a Journalist?
Placeholder Image
A new Senate bill to protect journalists has stirred up a hornet’s nest of criticism over an old nagging question: who in the age of WikiLeaks is a “journalist”? A bill called the Free Flow of Information Act of 2013 was sent by the Senate Judiciary Committee last week to the full Senate for a vote. It essentially defines a journalist as someone who “regularly” or recently works for a newsgathering, editing and distributing operation and, by the way, is not a terrorist or Julian Assange.
