Congress wants to criminalize whistleblower reporting #Wikileaks #Anonymous

Some lawmakers want to go after reporters that publish government secrets. This week, House Republicans sought legal advice on whether reporters can be prosecuted for making leaked classified information public.

This comes after some high profile leaks from whistleblowers revealed the truth nature of America's cyber warfare program and even President Obama's so-called "kill list."

Lawmakers say they want to punish journalists that compromise national security, but critics argue that this is a war on the media and Americans' First Amendment rights. Andrew Blake, RT web producer, joins Liz Wahl to explain what this would that mean for freedom of the press and free speech.
