I was struck yesterday by the odd questions that sports journalists were posing -- should the San Francisco Chronicle reporters called to testify before the gand jury investigating the BALCO-steroids-Barry Bonds case reveal their source or sources?
The (predictable) answer was "no", which, in my opinion, is the correct (and only) one. But I was left to wonder why journalists would ask other journalists what they would do. In other words, did anyone expect a different answer?
Here's a news story about the reporters who are being ordered to testify.
