-- case of Fox News reporter John L winter finally gaining some attention by the mainstream media.
After being widely reported across this network last week which is exclusive July 25 story from last year revealing the existence.
Of a notebook that accused gunman James -- sent to his psychiatrist days before the -- -- movie -- shooting.
That left twelve dead and fifteen injured and now -- a -- -- DA or judge rather that's Carlos -- -- junior.
Threatening winter to divulge the names of her confidential sources who gave that information or spend time in jail for refusing to do so.
The judge delaying his decision now on Monday so we haven't gotten exactly what the judge is going do.
And whether he's gonna force -- to reveal that -- were lock her up but Judy you almost single handedly.
Because of your own personal experiences in the story is some more one got people focused on this -- really see anybody talking about it until I read your piece.
Well thank you very much but I had a lot of help and I initially believe it or not from social media because.
For some reason the mainstream media didn't seem very interesting and but I did want to salute Contra Schwartz a -- -- Who was one of the first people to write about the absence of -- mainstream media coverage and also Joseph Scarborough who mentioned her case in his show.
And Jake Tapper the only anchor on CNN who talked about it but you know.
This can happen when reporters aren't paying attention and I think that's the lesson that we've seen and I also want to thank.
Judge Carlos and -- are the new judge in this case for trying to begin to make this issue go away.
We should also probably think the editors of the New York Times who covered the northeast section.
'cause they put it on.
-- hot as of Monday.
There was nothing on Tuesday they ran -- not bad etc.
-- money three -- it was not a ride anywhere to be seen when it first came out.
Yeah I went on the back to Rick for a -- someone who has been a source for journalist and your former capacity as a spokesperson and possibly it with somebody at this tape perhaps so.
It's going to folks because I don't know that everybody fully understands the relationship between sources and reporters and and why that.
That that agreement between them when source needs and requires.
And anonymity why that's so important what happens when it's when it's broken.
Yeah it's certainly very important and sources are the ones that consistent source is -- people are spokespeople.
We really know who's pushing the limit.
Who says things in the media that weren't quite it's exactly what we -- and so there there's a whole huge kind of industry of people who know the reporters who puts it too much but it's really important to be able to get the story out.
And not play gotcha politics the problem that we have in our society is too much of the -- I'm focusing on one word and we missed the spirit of the conversation.
-- and some have said including Judy that if if John -- work for anyone other than Fox News.
That this story would have been getting a lot more attention lots and well.
Usually it is true actually media I went and said that all of us here at Fox News right left center supported -- winner and that.
This -- area this -- I got it right and that that we did that yes because people don't understand that.
And we may have different viewpoints where we come from politically but we all understand I hope good journalists.
-- there's -- I completely agree this is of -- finest hour of the media even the Columbia Journalism Review belatedly came back with -- that's an area that's much of their -- manager Tobin fox.
But a new cases emerge for example the Franklin Center for Public Integrity which is a conservative media watchdog group.
And -- media outlet for that matter.
They did a seven part series on Terry McAuliffe and -- green jobs neo Solyndra 8123 boondoggle and Virginian and Mississippi.
And it long and investigative and complicated cause a lot of ripples and now Terry McAuliffe is suing them for 85 million dollars and they did their journalistic thing.
And now they're being sued for 85 at best on intimidation.
Against and that it is the peace is not defamatory simply says they've they've squandered journalism journalism Judy last word on this for now.
The fact that the judge has delayed his decision and we think in the -- and do the right thing.
Well I'm certainly hoping so and the amount of media attention will also I cast to affect that decision and all I can -- -- is that.
I would've gone to jail to protect you any time.
And maybe you did --
