The National Defense Authorization Act isn't being covered by the mainstream press?

The fact that the mainstream media hasn't mentioned this is very scary:

"The broadcast media's ignorance and unwillingness to cover the National Defense Authorization Act, a radical piece of legislation which outrageously redefines the US homeland as a 'battlefield' and makes US citizens subject to military apprehension and detainment for life without access to a trial or attorney, is unacceptable." - David Seamen, Business Insider

President Obama's response:

Here is the most recent news on the matter:

My thinking in posting this is that it screams of the McCarthyism of the 1950s in which anybody suspected of being a Communist could be blacklisted from American popular society. Today, if you and I are accused of something in this country, we get a trial. Opponents claim that under the  wording of the proposed NDAA, if we are merely suspected of being a terrorist, that might not happen; and while I don't feel I'm in any direct danger of being accused of terrorism, the premise of this bill is still scary as all Orwellian hell.

Please pass this on as media seems to be shying away  from what  appears to be a mammoth civil rights issue.
