always protect your source

"Saying the free flow of information must not be choked off, the House on Tuesday took up a media shield bill to protect the confidentiality of reporters' sources in most federal court cases. The White House, warning that the bill would encourage leaks of classified information, threatened a veto. (taken from editorandpublisher.com

And here I was thinking that this was a standard thing done to protect journalists and their sources, and the public's right to information. Stupid little me... Let's just hope the WH doesn't get its way with this.

Yes...let's definitely hope they don't get their way. I am not always a big fan of the media, but I do believe they have the right to protect their sources. Good, bad or otherwise.
