A Parade of Reporters at the Libby Trial

Judith Miller, the former New York Times reporter who went to jail for 85 days rather than name her source, Lewis Libby, is scheduled to take the stand today at his trial. Two other journalists, NBC's Tim Russert, and Time magazine's Matthew Cooper, are likely to follow her, in what is often described as a newsperson's nightmare--when the reporter becomes the story. Read more here in a CBS account. Mr. Russert said publicly yesterday that he was not the source of information that Valerie Plame worked at the CIA, as Mr. Libby has claimed. For a British view of the trial, see Alex Massie's article for the Telegraph here.
