Regardless of what you think of FOX News, the fact that any reporters are facing jail time for not revealing a source is a frightening notion.

According to Fox News,

In the summer of 2012, James Holmes shot and killed 12 people and injured more than 50 others at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado. As the nation asked why, FoxNews.com reporter Jana Winter was the first to break the story about a notebook Holmes sent a psychiatrist that detailed his plans for the rampage.

Holmes’ attorneys say Winter must give up her sources regarding the notebook because the leaked information hampers their client’s right to a fair trial. Winter is hoping a judge will uphold New York’s media shield law, which protects journalists from revealing sources. If the judge doesn’t, she’ll have to return to a Colorado court where she faces possible jail time.
