Journalists Object To Contempt Ruling Against Chicago Reporter

Several journalism organizations are criticizing a judge's decision to find a suburban Chicago reporter in contempt for not disclosing how he obtained confidential police reports about a gruesome double murder.


Joe Hosey, a reporter and editor for the AOL news website Patch, is being fined $300 a day, and could be sent to jail if he doesn’t disclose his source.


The Illinois News Broadcasters Association issued a statement calling the judge's decision "a slap at the First Amendment."
