24. The law from 1972
does allow judges to decide if the journalist has a greater need to protect the source, or if the prosecutor needs it because there is no other avenue available to gather the necessary evidence. I think that several of us have been saying this for the past nine months: whistle blowers are afforded protection on an individual, case-by-case basis. This case doesn't have anything to do with protecting whistle blowers.
