Blogger Jailed

Sphere: Related Content

This piece is interesting for several reasons. First that the NY Times refers to bloggers as "journalists"

Mr. Wolf, a recent college graduate, is the latest journalist to face prison time for refusing to cooperate with federal investigators. Last year, the New York Times reporter Judith Miller served nearly three months in jail after refusing to divulge her sources in the investigation of the leak of a covert C.I.A. agent’s name.

Second, would they have printed the story if it had been a right-wing blogger such as Zombie?

We must fight to get this man released as the next blogger they go after could be any one of us. Here's his site with an appeal from his mom for help.
