Media Shield Law Passes Congress

Vote was 398-21.

To be honest, I'm shocked it passed by so much. The bill would protect journalists from revealing confidential sources in cases, except those involving National Security.

The bill was sponsered by Rep. Rick Boucher (D-Virginia)

20 Republicans and 1 Democrat voting against it;

Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii)
Todd Akin (R-Missouri)
Joe Barton (R-Texas)
Henry Brown (R-South Carolina)
Steve Buyer (R-Indiana)
John Carter (R-Texas)
John Culberson (R-Texas)
Wally Herger (R-California)
Darrell Issa (R-California)
Sam Johnson (R-Texas)
Steve King (R-Iowa)
Peter King (R-New York)
Daniel Lungren (R-California)
John Mica (R-Florida)
Tom Petri (R-Wisconsin)
Ed Royce (R-California)
Bill Sali (R-Idaho)
Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin)
Lamar Smith (R-Texas)
Mac Thornberry (R-Texas)
Dave Weldon (R-Florida)
