There is a move in the US to protect journalists with a shield law. It's a bad idea. Because as the article asks, "Who is a journalist?" With the internet and blogging, anyone can be a journalist and many are. How do you determine who to cover and who not? It's a bad path to go down, but journalists are out there pushing it. It seems they are no different from anyone else when their self-interest is at stake.
