We should have posted this news earlier. Back on May 17, 2010, President Obama signed signed H.R. 3714 (which is now Public Law 111-166). The law requires that information about freedom of the press be included in the annual country reports of human rights practices. And for all of you legal trivia buffs, the new law was an amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.
