"The time has come for congressional action" Lee Levine

Today's quotation from yesterday's House Judiciary Committee hearing on the "Free Flow Information Act of 2007" (HR 2102). The bill provides "qualified immunity to journalists from revealing their sources under certain circumstances." This is the federal "media shield" legislation. William Safire was also on yesterday's panel. Video webcast replay is available here.

Your duke, Dave Sholin (pictured), will soon be back on the radio in the bay area. Word is he's been signed by CBS to host the breakfast show on KFRC. Smart. The debrouillard is, no doubt, programming ace Mike Preston. Congrats to the Duke and to Mike; my thanks to Joel Denver for the 1978 photo.
