He is the main House sponsor of a bill intended to protect journalists from being compelled to give up information about their government sourceseven when the sources have divulged matters of national

and no independent oversight That is exactly the kind of dispute a shield law is meant to resolve Before compelling a journalist to testify or surrender recordsthe government would be obliged to meet the journalists lawyers in front of a judge The prosecutors would have to make a good case that they had no other way to find the leakthat they would not cast their net so widely as to intrude on other reporting operationsand that identifying the leak was more important than the public value of the story Sadlythe current Senate version of the shield lawwhich has been laboriously massaged to accommodate both media companies and secrecy hawkshas an intolerably large loophole for cases in which the government claims national security is at risk That would leave the government with a free
