I so I wanna hear your opinions in I mean.
As if you were defending her.
Should give up her sources she she hold on to that right that she has this source and it's confidential.
If our defending her which I am I've tweeted about this and and FaceBook this cases -- does that judgment while time -- had a terrific.
Op Ed I think yesterday and then at Fox's opinion and there's a new story today on Fox News dot and did did my best to distribute both of those I would be saying not only.
Does that -- get a winter fall in the category of other reporters who have protected sources per their First Amendment.
But in addition I would also say where's the rest of the mainstream media on this it's just this -- morning -- -- and checked the Columbia journalism review of the American journalism review of the New York Times.
And users self declared bastions of free speech and free protection.
Shield laws and talk and not a word zero on this case which I.
-- the virus skeptic I would say that I probably attribute that to anti fox biased.
That a reporter who does the right thing and journalistically.
Is normally euros except when he -- she works with fox in which case -- on their own I think that's atrocious.
Yeah I think that it's funny to say that -- I noticed the same thing this morning when I was just getting.
Reviewing the case and reading up on it now she is looks like as you know going CU -- hearing orders the hearing is scheduled for April 10.
But I'm curious to what our viewers think so log on foxnews.com should -- The judge -- winter if she declines to reveal.
Her sources now one thing I want it get from region before we take a break is that a -- in Colorado.
Did -- give her an advantage at all in this case.
Well I -- what I was really struck by I was last night as I understand that the judge released a bunch of documents showing much more than Jana winter reported -- -- -- the judge released documents saying that that bit.
This -- the psychiatrist.
Had actually contacted the police and said look this patient of mine is a homicidal maniac.
And noticeably about it and that's a much bigger piece of information then that that that that the notebook was there so -- but these cases usually.
And up kind of disappearing not.
-- they get legally adjudicated out of existence of -- they finally get up.
And I I think that'll happen in this in this case but again I think it it requires the vigilance of the good journalistic establishment which and so notably lacking.
Now Giuliani -- opinion I wrote down a quote from Judith Miller -- back in 2000 I didn't and she said.
She did not go not be in good conscious if she violates the promises to her sources so.
I mean even as as some money you expose yourself every day and would you ever reveal a source that you -- put in this particular -- I don't think that not only what I never.
Real source I have been a source many times obviously I think any of us who worked in politics have been and I will tell you if I ever thought that somebody was speaking to off the record.
Ever violated the sanctity that.
Commitment to -- that this was an off the record comment that under any circumstances that they would reveal it to anybody aside from possibly -- editor.
I would be fear is that -- have a real breakdown of the journal not not just the integrity of those sorts.
Journalists relationship but really our media would be so poorly served by -- because people being much more reluctant to speak and the media would much have much more.
Much fewer ways to talk about what's going on -- and probably would not have information it actually ultimately harms the public.
Because the public would not have access to some this information because not everybody wants to go on the record for a variety of reasons.
And not everybody wants their name attached to something so if you tell somebody something either on -- -- -- the record.
And all the sudden that relationship for not being honored anymore the public wouldn't have access to probably I would -- well over 50% of what they're reading right now.
-- -- we we wouldn't be allowed only to have this conversation if we if we -- I -- to speak I can't wait there you know she's she's a role model for I think every journalist but I think.
I would argue that any good journalist worth their salt would should.
And -- -- apps they -- the New York Times and others are not on this they should be on -- -- more in there on anything else the bread and -- of their business.
Consists of this relationship about relationship for jeopardized by judge -- anybody else.
That will be the end of New York Times -- -- the end of every journalists really every real journalism that journalistic.
Entity in the country.
Yes also detected at it will mean it's important for the public to understand look if if -- the James Holmes case seemed to show a pretty significant break down in no way that we deal with mentally ill people making.
-- death threats and talk about killing people and there were sitting here at a big debate on -- drones on and certainly part of the elements on gun violence.
Are how do you deal with -- mentally ill at at the system that between the ears of Colorado and the cops out there -- -- Can't figure out how to keep the gay people are busily making death threats -- let them.
That is how hard to see how any other element of gun control could could possibly be affected if he can't keep the -- from getting guns.
And -- did it.
