Obama will be signing the Daniel Pearle FREEDOM of the PRESS ACT on monday.
please note (2) below
In regards to what I have posted from the South Korean news paper considering the tough talk from Hillary and the official S korea line:
The clinton body count of dead journalists:
like Vincent Foster who was "Arkencided"
The way Israel treat the freedom of the press on The gaza aid flotilla:
"claims the Foreign Press Association in Israel that the military "is selectively using footage to bolster its claims that commandos opened fire
only after being attacked."
The CPJ has called on the Israeli government to return all equipment, notes, and footage confiscated from journalists.
Its Middle East and North Africa programme coordinator, Mohamed Abdel Dayem, said: "Israel has confiscated journalistic material and then manipulated
it to serve its interests. It must cease this practice without delay, and return all property seized from journalists who were covering this
legitimate news event."
He also complained about "the treatment meted out" to journalists as being unacceptable. "It is Israel's responsibility to conduct its operations
in ways that also allow journalists to report the news," he said.
Purposes- The purposes of this Act are to–
(1) highlight and promote the work and accomplishments of journalists and media organizations that promote freedom of opinion and expression
(2) draw attention to the conditions in countries in which journalists are killed, imprisoned, kidnapped, threatened, or censored;
(3) offer protection for these individuals and media organizations by identifying to the international community those countries where journalists are
at the highest risk; and

in United States
