What do you think?

What is your take on this Fox News journalist being put in jail due to not revealing her sources? As a journalist I pray I never have to deal with this. Ethically, I know the right thing to do it keep confidential sources confidential. But that’s easier said than done with the law breathing down your back. I can only hope I would have the courage this journalist has.

    As you said, we are all taught that ethically, we must keep our sources confidential, but with consequences like this, it must be almost impossible to sometimes. I think this is what sets the journalists who do it because they have a passion for the job and the ones who do it as a means to make money. You need to have an incredibly strong commitment to your craft to go to jail for not revealing your sources. Good for her and it’s nice to see that there are still some professional journalists out there.
