Hi Greg, in the past, you had helped me with an assignment.. Would you be able to help me with another assignment??
Here it is.. This is due on Friday 01/30/09 Checkpoint: '' Constitutionality of Free Speech vs. Threats to National Security.''
"Journalists Caught in the Crossfire: Robert Novak, the First Amendment, and Journalist's Duty of Confidentiality"
I have to Provide
a 50- to 75-word response to each of these questions:
1.) What role does the Intelligence Identities Protection Act play in this matter?
2.) What does the threat or exercise of criminal punishment typically have upon journalists? How might punishment conflict with First Amendment protections of freedoms of speech and press?
3.) How could Novak's publication of Valerie Plame's identity jeopardize national security?
4.) What is contempt of court, and for what reasons are journalists held in contempt? Who was held in contempt in the Plame matter and why?
