The Bad News First

The bad news is that a federal judge is ordering a reporter to jail for not divulging sources, which is absolutely horrifying, since it seems like the kind of thing that happens in North Korea, not in the United States. The lone silver lining is that evil human being Karl Rove (see “racist attacks on McCain, 2000”) could find himself in hot water because of it. Also, can anyone tell me why Robert Novak isn’t in any trouble? That’s the part I really don’t get.
