Freedom of press

A judge has just ordered New York Times reporter Judith Miller to jail for refusing to divulge her source to a grand jury investigating the Bush administration's leak of an undercover CIA operative's name.

"There is still a realistic possibility that confinement might cause her to testify," U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan said.

Miller stood up, hugged her lawyer and was escorted from the courtroom.

What a sad day for freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Meanwhile, Novak's still a free man!
