Miller and Cooper to be Held in Contempt

The two journalists that were ordered to release the name of the informant that leaked the name of Valerie Plame have been given until Friday to produce the name of their White House informant or go to jail.

While, normally, I would back the journalists in protecting their source, I cannot do it in this situation. Normally, the journalists is protecting a source that is disclosing a crime so it can be exposed. In this case, the source was committing the crime and using the media as its tool to do it. If a line is not draw in the sand between what is and what is not protected as freedom of speech, this will not be the last time that partisan politicians use the media to commit such a crime.
