Sure. This is going to be very short. There is no such thing as journalistic privilege.
When journalists try to argue that they have a reporter’s privilege, they’re doing it for their own benefit, not for yours. They believe that their industry depends on the ability of the press to keep certain information from ever becoming public, even when ordered by a judge. They feel that they won’t get as many scoops if sources are worried about being “outed”. This is definitely an argument I can accept up to a certain point, but it is not even close to the same thing as solicitor-client privilege. Your lawyer doesn’t keep your secrets so he’ll get more business.
Thanks for your question.
