House bill not enough to protect journalists


SPJ News

An intelligence bill that has passed in the House would prohibit the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency from using U.S. journalists as spies. But the bill, passed last week, would still allow the CIA to recruit foreign journalists, or have its own agents pose as reporters.

"I don't consider this a victory," said G. Kelly Hawes, SPJ president. "The central issue is still the fact that CIA agents can pose as reporters. And that puts journalists in danger."
