Well, So Much For THAT Amendment!

Censored-First-AmendmentMike Vanderboegh (and a number of other bloggers) bring to our attention to a further attempted erosion of our rights.  This time, Amendment the First!

Advancing their quest for “common sense press control,” the Senate Judiciary Committee voted yesterday to define who the government will consider to be an “Authorized Journalist,” meaning if the measure becomes law, they will also be able to declare who is not. Voting 13-5 on “a compromise worked out by Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Dick Durbin in coordination with news organizations … the overall bill will … would codify many of the regulations proposed earlier this year by Attorney General Eric Holder,” Fox News reported.

Notice who the three Senators are, and who is specifically excluded as an ‘authorized journalist’ in their proposed definition of same.

  1. Fortunately, I make no pretension of being a journalist. But there are plenty of folks who are legit, just not paid. So since Komrade Feinstein has declared a salary to be the benchmark, the fight just got a little tougher.

    But not yet impossible.

  2. Hopefully, that twaddle won’t make it into law, only out of committee. Does show the elitist thinking of what passes for leadership in this country.

  3. UpChuckie, Durbin The Dick and FineSwine are just looking out for everyones best interests, which is par for the course for these Superheros of Righteousness and Good.

    Just because they want to tax the shit out of everyone who says anything contrary to the Dem machine, you blog writers/readers get all irritated like they have an agenda or something.

    What could possibly go wrong with common sense speech control?
