How do these, “special privileges,” that journalists get pass 14th Amendment muster? If the average citizen doesn’t have these rights, how come journalists get them?
There is no special privilege for journalists. You cannot be compelled to testify either. The only thing special here is that some nutty judge thinks he can force a journalist to explain something she reported, how she got the information, etc. They are doing it to try to hide government shennanigans.
This is classic 1st amendment.
Too bad she didn’t disclose the forbidden toxicology tests of Lanza in Newtown.
And since you just “published your viewpoint” on the Internet, you better hope that this journalist stands strong against an unlawful judicial edict.
Did you temporarily forget who works for whom?
