Warning to Publicists – Be careful if you source

Have you joined my incredibly non-annoying, once-in-a-while email newsletter?

So very, very sad. Judith Miller of the New York Times was ordered to jail today by a judge for refusing to divulge the source who revealed her CIA operative. (Link to Wonkette)

So be careful. We can no longer give tips to reporters on stories without having a bit of fear that our reporter will wind up either a) giving us up (like Time,) or going to jail (like the Times.)

A very sad state of affairs, indeed.
