Source Releases Journalist from Confidentiality Protection

After spending about three months in jail to protect a confidential source, New York Times reporter Judith Miller accepted the source’s decision to release her from the confidentiality agreement and revealed his identity.

"I served 85 days in jail because of my belief in the importance of upholding the confidential relationship journalists have with their sources. ….

… I am also hopeful that my time in jail will help pass a federal shield law so that the public’s right to know can be protected,"

she stated.
