Reporter Judith Miller Jailed

Yahoo : "New York Times reporter Judith Miller was jailed Wednesday for refusing to divulge a confidential source to a grand jury investigating the Bush administration's leak of an undercover CIA operative's name. It added legal drama to what was already one of the most closely watched press freedom cases in recent history."

Here's my favorite bit about this part of the story-- Miller NEVER wrote an article or story about the situation. She just did some research/reporting.

"Asked why prosecutors sought Miller's testimony when she never wrote a story about Plame, Times attorney Floyd Abrams said, "We don't know, but most likely somebody testified to the grand jury that he or she had spoken to Judy.""

Jecfuhriscsusk. What a screwup. Everything about this entire series of events is dumbfounding. (http://www.cnn.com/2005/LAW/06/30/novak.reporters/) I wish the Supreme Court had gotten involved. I wish Sandra Day O'Conner had stuck around! Please let us keep Roe vs. Wade, you crazy conservatives. I will go on a rampage if... Save The Court
