NAB Supports Federal Shield Law

Congress is deliberating the “Free Flow of Information Act of 2013,” introduced in the House by representatives Ted Poe (R-TX), Trey Radel (R-FL) and John Conyers (D-MI) pictured, L-R

Radel offered his opinion, strengthened by street cred: “As someone who has worked as a journalist for almost 20 years, this issue is close to my heart. We need to protect every American’s right to free speech.”

NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith said in support, “As broadcasters, we believe there is nothing more vital to preserving a vibrant democracy than the First Commencement and the freedoms afforded journalists in keeping citizens informed.”
