Almost here - A Washington Media "Shield Law"

There's an editorial in the Bellingham Herald urging the Washington State Senate to pass the Media "Shield Law" HB 2452 . A Media "Shield Law" is certainly a good idea and this bill looks pretty comprehensive in it's protection.

I'm not sure why the editorial takes Democratic State Senators to task, it certainly doesn't step-up and name names. The bill passed the State House 87-11 with ten of those eleven nay votes coming from Republicans; So it's tough to tell if there's really a problem or if it's just grandstanding by Attorney General Rob McKenna (R).

It couldn't hurt to drop an email to your State Senator, asking them to be sure this bill gets passed.
