Mich. bill would mandate reporters get a license to cover politics
A measure proposed in the Michigan Senate would require journalists to
receive a state license in order to cover politics in the state. To
qualify for the license, applicants would have to submit "proof" of
"good moral characters," ethical standards, a journalism or other
degree, and at least three years of experience. NTS MediaOnline http://r.smartbrief.com/resp/wHgIcraDainRDmYj
