Congress Now Trying To Outlaw Reporting On Government Corruption
Lawmakers are pushing legislation through Congress, that will criminalize reporting on illegal activities and corruption within the United States government. Some lawmakers want to go after reporters that publish government secrets. House Republicans sought legal advice on whether reporters can be prosecuted for making leaked classified information public. This comes after some high profile leaks from whistleblowers revealed the truth nature of America’s cyber warfare program and even President Obama’s secret “kill list.” Lawmakers say they want to punish journalists that compromise ‘national security,’ but critics argue, this is a war on the media and Americans’ First Amendment rights. At the end of the day, what they actually want, is total and complete immunisation and protection for ongoing and future criminal, corrupt activities.
