Save Judith Miller!

Are the people who are seeking Judge Roberts legal memos when he was practicing law or when he was a law clerk the same people complaining about the jailing of Judith Miller? Which privilege is of greater value to society. The legal privilege is a long-recognized one that allows clients to openly discuss matters with their lawyers to assist in trials that expose them to loss of their assets or freedom. The reporter privilege is less legally recognized. While the public is served by a similar access and openness with reporters, many "sources" face no penalty should they talk to a reporter with no protection by a privilege.

I support a limited privilege for reporters. But I seek some consistency from the Democrats who claim some form of "cover-up" takes place when an attorney refuses to provide legal memos, notes and sealed briefs to satisfy a Congressional inquiry that offers no privacy protection.
