Supreme Court refuses to hear reporters' appeal over subpoenas
The Supreme Court has rejected appeals from two journalists who refused to testify before a grand jury about the leak of a CIA agent's identity. In the federal criminal investigation, the court rejected the journalist's argument that the First Amendment shielded them from naming their sources.
The court had been asked to settle whether reporters can be jailed or fined for refusing to identity their sources.
Many news organizations and 34 states had asked the court to intervene. They argued that confidentiality is important in news gathering. Court papers from news organizations, including The Associated Press, argued the public will lose "important information" if reporters can't promise anonymity.
Time magazine's Matthew Cooper and Judith Miller of The New York Times face up to 18 months in jail for refusing to reveal sources.
Officials have been trying to find out who leaked the name of a CIA officer. A federal judge held the reporters in contempt last fall.
