You shouldnâ€™t have asked.
First, the hate-Bush left wing was demanding to know who leaked Valerie Plameâ€™s name to the press in what they saw as retribution for Joseph Wilsonâ€™s words against the Bush Administration.
But now that they are one step away from the source of the leak, they donâ€™t want them thrown in jail for refusing to give up the name.
Why, because the sources are NY Times reporter, Judith Miller, and Time Magazine reporter, Matthew Cooper.
With the SCOTUS refusing to hear their case, the two reporters will surely face jail time.
Does anyone here doubt that if the person who was facing jail time was a friend of the Bush White House or, especially, an employee of said Administration, folks like Farhad Manjoo of Salon would have totally forgotten the phrase “1st Amendment protection” ?
