Bill Punishing Media Outlets For "Selective Reporting" Pulled

A bill introduced by a Rhode Island lawmaker that would prevent news media outlets from, quote, "selective reporting" on criminal cases and other matters was withdrawn Thursday, a day after it was introduced. The legislation, called "The Stop Guilt by Accusation Act", was sponsored by Pawtucket state Senator Sandra Cano. It proposed a fine for media outlets that report the initial coverage of a criminal case but then do not report the outcome. Critics assailed the bill as anti-freedom of the press.
