Amendment I to the Constitution of the United States of America says: "Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of the press ..."

Given that, what is in the law Obama just signed?

How did they find out he was signing it today?

Well he did them a favor ow they do not have to look even more moronic than they already do by defending the lies that mac daddy says while moving his lips.

Hey mac daddy, do yourself a favor and just stfu as people with an IQ above 35 know that you never ever tell the truth about anything.

It's to promote press freedom in other countries. Ironic, as our domestic press has raced to become the mouthpiece for the state.

I thought “Freedom of the Press” was part of the US Constitution? Why do we now need an “Act”?

It is a law that has ZERO affect, and :
 

requires the State Department to list countries that threaten press freedoms and permit violence against journalists. It "puts us clearly on the side of journalistic freedom," Obama said.

That was a cue for reporters in the room.

"Speaking of press freedoms," began Chip Reid of CBS before launching into a question about the Gulf Coast oil spill.

Obama didn't bite.

"You are free to ask them," Obama said. "I'm not doing a press conference today."

 

Freedom of Press?  Well, I guess he is relieved to be free from the press.

Bad advice. When he talks we know the opposite is true!

And not one so-called reporter is challenging or complaining about Obama not holding any press conferences for months!
