In Contempt of Court
U.S. District Judge Rosemary Collyer "found Washington Post reporter Walter Pincus in contempt Wednesday [November 15, 2005], saying the journalist must reveal his government sources for stories about the criminal investigation of nuclear scientist Wen Ho Lee."
Collyer said "'in order to avoid a repetition of the Judith Miller imbroglio,' Pincus must contact his sources to inform them of the court's order in case they wish to release him from his pledge of confidentiality," Pete Yost reported in the November 16, 2005, Washington Post.
Countering Government SPin
Reflecting on his 50 years of reporting Washington politics, Pincus noted that media coverage has "become dominated by increasingly sophisticated public relations practitioners, primarily in the White House and other agencies of government." Writing in an edition of the Nieman Reports on the theme of "journalistic courage", Pincus argues that "journalistic courage should include the refusal to publish in a newspaper or carry on a TV or radio news show any statements made by the President or any other government official that are designed solely as a public relations tool, offering no new or valuable information to the public."
