Shield law is not something I thought about daily or at all for that matter. Through this project I learned just how much it can actually affect my life daily. It can affect it by not being able to get a hold of certain information, if this law was not in place, or given the wrong information because people with the truth would be too scared to speak up. I think it’s important for me to know about shield law also because I too may be someone who will need to disclose information and will want to be protected. Overall, the issues with shield law seem to be something that the government will continue to struggle with especially in this time of online news where everyone can be considered a journalist. As a aspiring journalist this project helped me understand what it is like to be one and the protection one as a journalist is entitled to.
