Homeland security is about to begin an operation very similar to dictatorships that collects information on journalism in an effort to eliminate any information that THEY deem false. Pay special attention to that ETC., attached to the end of the list of persons this would effect, who do you think is this etc. persons? I'm betting you've met him/her. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/04/07/homeland-security-database-would-track-journalists-media-influencers-report.html
When are we as a nation of people with the rights to be secure in our persons, papers, and effects going to stand up and say no more? I despise fake news, I really do. However, the first amendment says, "Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances." https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/first_amendment
..... Nowhere in there does it say, "Unless WE decide it's a lie." My fellow countrymen, this is how it all happens. This is how they create lists that enable dictatorships to eliminate any political opposition in a single sweep. This is the beginnings of how millions of innocent men and women end up on trains heading for prison camps in a single day. This is how freedoms are lost. So I ask, why do this? Regardless of what type of good intentions you may be presenting it with, nothing good will come of it. This will instill fear in journalism that WILL cause some people to NOT REPORT something that people TRULY need to be informed of out of fear of being incarcerated or killed. Or, is that your intent?
