INDIANAPOLIS - A measure that would make it illegal to make undercover videos of a farm or business passed an Indiana Senate committee Tuesday.

In the bill's current form, whistle-blowers - including journalists documenting stories or members of the public who post videos on YouTube purporting to show mistreated animals or inhumane working conditions - would face legal sanctions. Those range from an infraction for a first offense, the smallest legal penalty available, to a Class A misdemeanor, punishable with up to a $5,000 fine, for a second offense

I dont know about the rest of you, but it looks like a slippery slope to me!
