Seriously? AS IF congress could pass anything that quickly. You've got to be kidding.

I don't understand the outrage.
There are already MULTIPLE laws that govern what journalists can do and not do over print or on the air.
The naming of victims for example, the naming of suspects pending grand jury investigations, the name of minors etc.
All of these things are 'restrictions' to the press. Which are fine IMO.
There's no reason we should allow the media to glorify mass shooting suspects within minutes of the coverage starting. It's one of the reasons why we have so many shootings, because of media saturation.
