The Radio-Television News Directors Association called again for swift passage of a federal shield law, as it condemned the sentencing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller to jail for refusing to divulge a confidential source.
Barbara Cochran, RTNDA president, stated, "We are calling on our members to contact members of Congress and ask them to support the legislation now pending in the House and Senate."
It supports legislation called The Free Flow of Information Act, which it said is designed to "give reporters the same protections that are afforded other professions such as clergy, attorneys and physicians."
