Freedom Of Press Act Signed: Obama Enacts Law To Provide More Protections To Journalists

Freedom Of Press Act Signed: Obama Enacts Law To Provide More Protections To Journalists

Commented May 17, 2010 at 14:38:48 in Politics

“Fair enough point. Although I still don't agree with them going after this reporter or others for writing about these types of things in Risen's case the failed CIA plan to disrupt the Iran's nuclear weapons program. I highly doubt they would have had a problem with him writing about it if it had been successful.

and BTW I said the Obama Administration i.e Eric Holder i.e. the Justice Dept. issued the Subpoena not the President”

“That's kind of funny, considering the Obama administration just subpoenaed a N.Y times reporter, James Risen. recently over his sources.”

eddw88 on May 17, 2010 at 13:15:32

“Where is the conflict?

Going through the system (courts) to get information from a reporter is the correct way. Coercing reporters to reveal the source of their information is wrong. Protecting their rights from coercion is still in place. BTW, the President doesn't have subpoena rights, the courts do.”

Cornel West Comments On Obama's Nobel Peace Prize: Hard To Be War President With Peace Prize

Commented Oct 10, 2009 at 21:16:44 in Politics

“I can't speak for anyone else, but I can say that I've never put forth the argument that the NPP committee is suspect for giving him the award.
That doesn't mean I agree with them giving it to them. Even Obama himself says he doesn't think he deservered it.
With that being said just because I agree with Dr. West's statements, it doesn't mean I'm gnashing my teeth or wringing my hands about him winning. I view it as the NPP committee engaging in Realpolitik in order to influence the actions of Obama and his administration.

The vast majority of people on both sides commenting about the NPP this year won't give a rat's ass about who wins it next year nor have they cared who won in the past.”

“While I don't know if Chris Rock is guilty of Copyright infringment or not, reading about this reminded me of the Steve Nash-Shaquille O'neal feud that developed

Shaq apparently got the idea for his ABC . show directly from Steve Nash. Nash hired a entertainment lawyer and was able to get Executive Producer Credits out of it.

“I agree, for the White House to pull a move like this and in such a public manner doesn't sit well with me. I'm not even a Patterson supporter particularly. I just know if it was me in his shoes I would be pissed and do exactly what he is doing. Dig in my heels and give a middle finger to the White House. Party be damned.”

“What I don't think a lot of people get is that no one is defending Serena's outburst.
Mr. Kimmel is pointing out that the backlash she has recieved from the media/public is showing is a result of a racial/gender bias.
You've got people who suddenly have selective amnesia when it comes to Athletes(particularly in tennis) going crazy on Officials.
No one would be wringing their hands/gnashing their teeth if it was Nadal who did this or Federer. Just as no one was doing so when McEnroe, Connors, Safin acted like idiots on the court.”

“Good editorial
It was a terrible call by the line judge . its akin to calling holding on the last play of an AFC/NFC championship or calling a foul on the last shot of a Conference final in basketball.
According to the rule book its the right call to make, but it's not an acceptable thing to do.”

“Oh No!! Civilization is going to end now. Serena Williams Cursed out a Line Judge(who rightfully deserved seeing as how she made an erroneous call). The Chair umpire was also right in assessing her a point.
This is a non-issue, as many times as John McEnroe curse out players/judges/umpires. and the Tennis world continued to spin.”
