Journalist's testimony eyed in CIA leak case
Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, July 6, 2005

A Time magazine reporter still must testify before a grand jury investigating the leak of a CIA officer's identity, a federal prosecutor said yesterday, though Time has surrendered e-mails and other documents sought in the probe. Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald urged a federal judge to send Time reporter Matt Cooper and New York Times reporter Judith Miller to jail if they continue to refuse to reveal their sources. "Journalists are not entitled to promise complete confidentiality -- no one in America is," Mr. Fitzgerald wrote in court filings. Mr. Cooper and Miss Miller reiterated last week that they would not name their sources and requested home detention rather than prison. Mr. Fitzgerald responded that allowing the reporters home confinement would make it easier for them to continue to defy a court order to testify before the grand jury. He said special treatment for journalists may "negate the coercive effect contemplated by federal law."

Joe Wilson and his America hating cohorts DEMANDED an investigation. Then they demanded our Attorney General recuse himself. They got what they wished for....a special prosecutor.

Gee, here I thought journalists were "Super Citizens" who were above the rest of us and the law. I bet they don't even pay taxes.

No, the pictures of those three fools are "Super Sh*tizens".

And there are countless others just like them in Leftie-Land.
