Judith Miller to address journalism group, receive award
LAS VEGAS New York Times reporter Judith Miller is getting an award and taking part in a journalism debate in Las Vegas today about whether reporters should be legally shielded from revealing confidential sources.
Miller recently spent 85 days in jail for refusing to testify before a federal grand jury.
She's due to receive a First Amendment award during a convention of the Society of Professional Journalists -- an organization with almost 10-thousand television, radio, print and student members nationwide.
S-P-J President Irwin Gratz says Miller's case highlights the need for a federal shield law. The Supreme Court has ruled the First Amendment doesn't protect reporters from grand jury subpoenas.
Miller's a key player in an investigation of how the name of covert C-I-A officer Valerie Plame was made public in July 2003.
Miller was freed from jail September 29th -- saying Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I- Lewis "Scooter" Libby, released her from her obligation to keep his name secret.
