The House of Representatives has approved House Bill 362 entitled "An Act amending RA 53, as amended, otherwise known as 'An Act to exempt the publisher, editor or reporter of any publication from revealing the source of published news or information obtained in confidence', by including within its coverage journalists from broadcast, news agencies and internet publications".

Journalists cannot be compelled to reveal their sources "unless the Court or the House of Representatives or the Senate or any of its committees finds that such revelation is demanded by the security of the State."

Do you agree with the proposed amendatory measure, which also seeks to specifically include internet journalists and commentators employed by legitimate media companies, from revealing their news sources?
