There are quite a lot of posters on the forums aspiring to a career in journalism. I'd like to know their views on the American journalist who refused to reveal the source who leaked the true identity of a lady as a CIA agent. The lady happened to be the wife of a strident critic of the war on Iraq, and blowing the cover of a CIA agent is a criminal offence in the US. Personally, I think she deserves the jail sentence shes getting. Freedom of the press and guaranteeing anonymity of a souce cannot be a shield for a criminal offence.
