Reporters and Lawyer Discuss CIA Leak, Jail
Journalists Judith Miller and Matt Cooper discuss their court case, in which they face jail time for refusing to reveal their sources in an investigation into the leak of a CIA officer's name. Despite attorney Floyd Abrams's efforts, on Feb. 15, 2005, a federal appeals court upheld a ruling against the two.
Cooper, the White House correspondent for Time magazine, and Miller, of The New York Times, did not publish the name, which was printed in a syndicated column by Robert Novak of The Chicago Sun-Times.
Miller is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter. In addiation to Time, Cooper has also worked for U.S. News and World Report and Newsweek. Abrams, their attorney, is a professor of First Amendment law at Columbia University.
