Federal Shield Law Fallout   

By Unknown

In joining with nearly every newspaper and journalists' organization in America to demand a federal shield law (From the Editor, February/March), AJR apparently sees no irony in reporters increasing their use of tools such as the FOIA to gain access to more and more government information. The overlapping messages seem to be that newsgatherers will dig hard to get a story but don't really want the public to be able to judge how accurate the story is. Trust us.

Add to those facts the general skepticism with which the public regards the press, especially the media's willingness to be manipulated by biased anonymous sources in the name of expediency, and it's not hard to understand why Congress has been unwilling to grant reporters a carte blanche shield protection that the rest of the public doesn't have.

How does one create a shield law that protects those who may be victims of confidential sources? What is the duty to maintain confidentiality to a lying source? What remedies are available to the victims of the story, including the journalist? Certainly there should be a chilling effect on the use of confidential sources in order to protect the truth. Justice is only served by truth, and sunshine is the antiseptic that can highlight the truth.

One wonders at the arrogance of journalists who believe that they and they alone have the right to ruin lives without paying a price. Only they have the right to be watchdogs! One can believe that the loss of readership and ad revenue of newspapers is due only to the Internet and the economy, but one cannot ignore the fact that the people have lost faith in journalism.

With due respect, the people are the watchdogs of the press, and when it fails to tell the truth in order to serve its own purposes, the people abandon it. If politicians become isolated from the public, journalists are even more isolated.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
