From the NPPA:

WASHINGTON, DC (July 31, 2008) – The federal shield law for journalists that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) promised to bring before the Senate before the summer recess, was stalled by Senate Republicans in a 51-to-43 vote that failed to move the legislation forward. The bill needed at least 60 votes in favor to proceed.

The bill could have a better chance of moving forward after the presidential election, because both party’s presumptive candidates have expressed support for it while the Bush Administration has threatened to veto it.

The Free Flow of Information Act, as it is called, would protect journalists from having to reveal sources in federal court. [via NPPA]
