76. Too Late ? Hey Legal Eagles and Journalist's ???
Many articles have expressed that too much time has passed and too much potential evidence destroyed or hidden.

QUESTION: The original information was shopped around to several journalists before Novak finally did the bidding. Novak can protect his source through First Amendment rights. What about the other journalists who refused to print and therefore have no public story or source to protect? Could they be compelled under oath and subpoena to reveal who shopped the information for a story they chose not to write or submit for print? Is this clearly defined by law or ethics?
