Ordered to give up sources

| 2 Comments

Bob Drogin of the L.A. Times and four other journalists have been ordered by a federal judge to reveal their government sources for stories on Wen Ho Lee. The Times, New York Times, Associated Press and CNN are expected to appeal, and it's still early on this one. Lee has filed a civil suit seeking damages saying the government divulged information about the scientist while investigating his activities at Los Alamitos National Lab.
