  •  it's the freedom stupid (none)
    not you, just using the expression...

    ..it's about the ability to get information, and we would be touting the need for shield laws if the situation was reversed...we must be better than repubs and stand on principle, even if it means demanding protection from Warmonger Miller...we don't yet know the facts, so we need to maintain the principles that we would wish to be applied to us...

    •  I really think we have something... (4.00)
      ...more complicated going on.  I'm of the belief, not through the contacts that SusanG or ePluribus Media has...just my feeling about what I've read, that we are dealing with Ms. Miller, the perp.  I think that's why Rove, et al are so free to let everyone testify.  It is MS. MILLER'S choice not to testify because she would be testifying against herself.  She told Rove.

      Now...the ultimate would be that Rove and other WH staffers have blown the whistle on her and turned the tables.  So what we are all thinking is a case of the journalists being asked to divulge info about the WH, we might have a case of the WH blowing the whistle on journalists.

      It wouldn't surprise me at all.

      However, kudos to my friend, Ms. G and I applaud Ambassador Wilson for his choice in journalists to release his side statement.  She is a professional.  Note the lack of commentary.  Just reporting the facts.  The dkos community and ePMedia should be proud to have her as a memberas am to have her as a colleague.

    •  Not Sure ... (4.00)
      I'm not sure about this ...

      If Judith Miller had information about a crime committed in the Clinton White House, I'm not so sure that I would want privilege shielding her from having to turn that information over to a special prosecutor.

      Fair is fair and justice is justice, no matter which party is in control of the government.

    •  This is aiding the commission of a felony (none)
      And in that case, I feel that journalists should not have a right to block their sources from an investigation. Any more than psychiatrists, spouses or priests do.

      (Are lawyers exempt from testimony regarding a felony of one of their clients? I wouldn't think so, but I don't know for sure.)
