According to the text of an amendment sponsored by Senators Diane Feinstein and Dick Durbin to the proposed “Free Flow of Information Act” (PDF) that passed the Senate Judiciary Committee on September 12, only salaried journalists will be given the free press protections guaranteed to all US citizens by the Constitution.

TYT's clip where I first heard about this 'interesting' tweak:

Freedom Of The Press For Everyone? No! Says Senators

They call it the free flow of information act...

Have read this some time ago and i donĀ“t know how journalistĀ“s could work under such circumstances. Not much left from the frist amendment and the media is of course not reporting about it.
