Mass. shield law would protect bloggers as journalists

Bob Ambrogi , who says he helped draft a new Massachusetts shield law to protect journalists from having to cough up their sources, describes the pending legislation in today's post. The bill "defines coverage to include any person who 'engages in the gathering of news or information' and 'has the intent, at the beginning of the process of gathering news or information, to disseminate the news or information to the public.'"
