Colorado Lawmaker Pushes to Strengthen Media Shield Law, Cites Reporter Case

State Sen. Bernie Herpin said he was inspired by Winter’s case. He wants to change Colorado's law so it more closely matches New York’s version – considered to be the country's strongest in terms of protecting journalists.
