Bloggers at the bar
: Heather Green at Business Week says that if the Times/Time source case goes before the Supreme Court, it could affect bloggers because attorney Floyd Abrams, representing the reporters, said on TV recently:
I think a blogger ought to be protected also. It seems to me that the purpose of this privilege is to protect the people who play a function in American life. It’s not to protect reporters as such. It’s to protect people who gather information and disseminate it on a widespread basis to the public.
Journalists are citizens and citizens are journalists.
