Shielding sources

In Apple case, court says bloggers' sources not protected

That's ok. It appears the sources of big-J journalists aren't protected either. Look at the case of Matthew Cooper and Judith Miller.

Matthew Cooper of Time magazine and Judith Miller of The New York Times face up to 18 months in prison if they don't comply with the government attorney's request. Nearly a dozen reporters nationwide are fighting subpoenas that seek testimony about confidential sources.

Without confidential sources we would have never gotten to the bottom of Watergate.
