For John, BLUF: Would it include Freelancers like City Life hosts and co-hosts? Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Twitchy "LOL. Journalists are concerned over a proposed ‘Responsible Journalism Registry Law’ in S.C."
Journalists seem concerned that a new proposed law in South Carolina to create a state registry of journalists might somehow violate the 1st Amendment.Here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts we could let the local Chief of Police keep the list.
Sheesh, all this new law does is create a database of names. There’s not even a waiting period or a prohibition against assault-journalists! And from the little we know about the law, it still allows Americans on the terror no-fly list to still publish their opinions. So, what’s the big deal?
Yes, if you were wondering, the person who has submitted this, State Rep Michael A Pitts, is a member of the NRA, a retired Police Officer and a member of the Army Reserve.
And, he is innovative and has a great sense of humor.
