Yesterday Was A Dark Day ...

Not that anybody's keeping score, but add my name to the list of journalists who are deeply chagrined by Time Editor In Chief Normal Pearlstine's decision to hand over Matthew Cooper's subpoenaed documents in the Valerie Plame case.

Pearlstine says that he and Time Inc. are not above the law and he must comply. No, he does not have to comply. He can refuse, and pay the fines, and stand by Cooper as he goes to jail.

I applaud the New York Times for standing by Judith Miller and her refusal to turn over her notes and reveal her sources.
