The New York Times' Next Martyr

The government has subpoenaed New York Times reporter James Risen, asking him to reveal the secret sources he used in his book about the Bush Administration and the CIA. Meaning James Risen could be the next Judy Miller.

Not Judy Miller in the sense of being a government patsy; Judy Miller in the sense of sitting in jail in order to protect sources. According to the NYT, the government wants to know who Risen's sources were for his reporting on "the C.I.A.'s effort to disrupt Iranian nuclear research;" Risen has a lawyer and plans to fight the subpoena, and presumably would go to jail to protect his sources. (This has happened to him before). The Obama administration, disappointing the free press once again! At least James Risen knows Bill Keller will keep his commissary account full.
