    For some reason I thought that they were trying to authenticate the notebook. Had that been the case, I think the appropriate balance between the defendant's rights and the reporter's role in a free society would've been to either verify the authenticity of the notebook through other means or toss it from evidence.

    After watching the clip I see they're looking to see if they can catch one of the officials involved in this case in a lie.

    I'm not really interested in knowing if one of 19 law enforcement officials told a lie. There's not even a guarantee that the culprit was one of them.

    All you can really do here is all you can ever do when you're trying to put together an impartial jury -- try to screen for people who have been following the story and know anything about it.

    I just thought of the perfect cover for a spy or someone prone to espionage.

    Become an "investigative reporter."

    Dig up dirt, secrets, weapon designs, classified information garnered from other spies, etc.

    They can't touch you! How cool would that be?

    Not exactly perfect as reporters distribute the information they gleen to the masses. Spies do not.

    If she didn't work for FOX this wouldn't be an issue. The left wing imperialist would have tossed this already.

    What an absurd comparison.

    Would you please specify who you are referring to in particular with this particular use of the term "left wing imperialist?"

    Might be a way to protect the source and allow the journal to be used?
    Probably not, since it would be basically inadmissible without knowing from where it was obtained. Any defense lawyer worth a damn would have that thrown out in a second.
