President Signs Press Act

President Barack Obama talks with Adam Pearl, son of murdered journalist Daniel Pearl, before signing the Daniel Pearl Freedom of Press Act in the Oval Office. The President was joined by members of Pearl’s family, including Pearl's widow, Mariane, for the signing of the act that expands efforts to identify countries where press freedom is being violated. The law is named after Pearl, a Wall Street Journal reporter who was killed by militants in Pakistan in 2002.
