I think the line has to be drawn at aiding illegal or dangerous activities, which this action did. It's one thing to protect sources but another to
actively assist a group in obstructing justice. Besides that, I sometimes feel like I would want them forced to give up the source. I am very
suspicious of anonymous sources because I don't know if they exist. That's why anytime I read something from "a person who refused to be
identified" or "an anonymous source close to ______", I discount it because for all I know the reporter needed some juice so made it up themselves,
knowing they'd never have to reveal their source without making the cops look like commies.
