I guess she'd better tell the prosecutor what he wants to

Hopefully she'll have the strength to choose that course.

Where does the First Amendment...

authorize any person or even any member of the press to be above the law Josh?

It doesn't, nor has any court decision at any time in the past extended such exemption from law in any Federal Court.

Just as one cannot yell FIRE in a theater or HIJACK or BOMB in an airport with impunity, the press is limited in what they can claim as any right under the First Amendment.

They know her source

She's holding out on some nonsense that waivers obtained by the prosecutor were "coerced".

The crime is Novak's revealing the identity of an active CIA
by Ziks511 / July 7, 2005 1:24 AM PDT

operative, as you know very well. And there's a Time Magazine journalist under the gun as well.

Why is Bob Novak still at large? If he were in jail for this instead of somebody who didn't publish anything on this issue, I wouldn't have a complaint.

Because ...
by Evie / July 7, 2005 4:14 AM PDT

... he committed no crime.

Miller is being punished for contempt of court. Not for the "crime" of outing a CIA agent.

You really should hold your tongue on this matter as you have already been proven wrong on just about every fact known until this point. Why embarrass yourself further?

From the beginning the issue twas the revelation
by Ziks511 / July 7, 2005 4:42 AM PDT
In reply to: Because ...

of the name of a serving CIA agent and the legality of that revelation. The investigation was into the source of the revelation.

Just tell me why it isn't a crime to out a CIA op when the laws of the United States say it is. It looks like one law for the friends of the Administration and another for everybody else.

I've sent a letter to Time Magazine saying the same thing.

Novak was never a target for criminal investigaton. At best, his source was.

Miller and Cooper refuse to reveal their sources. Novak is being silent, but every indication is that he has cooperated with investigators ... e.g. revealed his source.

i don't understand this at all
by jonah jones / July 7, 2005 3:12 AM PDT

"A" -novak- already named the woman?
"B" -cooper- wrote an article?
"C" -miller- interviewed someone?

so why is "C" doing time and not "A"?

Because using Novak is a red herring...
by Edward ODaniel / July 7, 2005 3:42 AM PDT

since no one knows whether he was subpoenaed nor if he testified.

He may well have received the info from those "journalists" (Cooper and Miller) who are refusing to respond to a Grand Jury as required under existing law.

Collapse -
Apparently he has testified ...
by Evie / July 7, 2005 4:16 AM PDT

... as has Russert (didn't know he was involved).

Jonah, read my MSNBC article in the other thread about this. It might just turn out that Novak's "source/outing" was second or third hand scooping of Cooper.

Time Magazine, and Miller and the New York Times are on
by Ziks511 / July 7, 2005 4:37 AM PDT

opposite courses. Time has turned over their reporters notes in deference to the court's ruling, Miller has gone to jail to defend her right to defend her source. Why would one of the best connected Conservative journalists, lap-dog of the current Administration and the man who outed the CIA agent, need to find things out from "liberal" journalists. He was clearly doing a character assasination job for the Administration, and with all the talk about Rove its a virtual certainty that they were in this together, but not a word has been said, just this witch hunt after 2 reporters who are NOT in the Admainistration's corner.

I just don't understand why they are the issue and Novak is not. Why isn't somebody in the supposedly monolithic and vicious "liberal" media hounding Novak to reveal whether he has revealed his source and who it is? I think they're afraid of the Adminsitration, and of Novak's special status as the pet attack dog of the Administration and Conservatism generally, but that's only my opinion.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
