Huh. I thought assaulting anyone was already a crime

…including reporters.

H.R _____ Journalist Protection Act
To amend title 18, United States Code, to provide a penalty for assault against journalists, and for other purposes.

But I guess I was wrong. So unless/until this passes, I’ve got this little list…

But seriously: This makes so-called “journalists” a special protected class, somehow more important than the little serfs being educated informed by their betters.

How special? Read ยง 120 (d)(2) for the oh-so-carefully crafted definition of “journalists.” Bloggers need not apply.

I could’ve sworn I’d once read something about “equal protection of the laws”. Guess I was mistaken; my bad.

Feel free to tell Rep. Eric Swalwell [D-CA-15] (yeah, you knew it had to be a Dim… and from the PRK, right) what you think.
