If beck reveals his sources, won't that change the cases where whistle blowers are involved?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 69776762


He has got to do the right thing, and he must lose everything and go to jail. If he reveals his sources he is a self-righteous hypocrite who will change journalism for the worse, and it can never be recovered.

Max, this is great reporting, but you are going to have to lessen these posts to less than 50% to avoid copyright violation. I will delete the post, and you repost with just 50% material. Thanks so much.

Beck is on really shaky ground here, and he could lose everything.

If he gives his sources up, he is basically a reporter no one will trust.

If he doesn't give his sources up, he is in violation of the court.

Man, I feel for him.

 Quoting: Purple Rose


It was widely reported that he was questioned and looked at closely... and CLEARED. It was Beck who insisted that he was really involved and he only doubled down from there.

Beck did NOT break this story... The truth may be that he simply read Drudge, or Breitbart or Infowars... and then took it a step further and tried to get credibility by claiming he had his own secret sources.

Maybe he wanted everyone to think he had some special connection to the government and the investigation and was getting inside information.

Then, the guy was cleared, and Beck was screwed...

So he acts like he is a Journalist and hides behind the constitution... not because he has any real convictions about it, but because he wants to save face.

The Judge is right... Beck can disclose this information, if he has it and is telling the truth, to the courts and the defendant and it can be kept out of the public view.

What the Judge should have done was to tell Glen that either he produces bona fide witnesses IN court, to back-up his PUBLIC accusations/claims, or the Judge would/will rule in favor of the person claiming Glen defamed them.

You don't make defaming or potentially defaming PUBLIC accusations about ANYONE, without having the proper PROOF readily available, to back-up your PUBLIC accusations/claims. PLAIN-and-SIMPLE!

It sounds like Glen is FUCKED! chuckle

True to an extent. I believe April 24th he dropped the story on the 212 3B after an interview he had with someone on his show.. but still 2 days before Drudge was running headlines pointing suspicion to the saudi... Why aren't they going after Matt Drudge?

April 22..

I feel for Beck, it's a hard situation, but isn't it ironic? I mean, look at the fact that his talking may label him as a "talker", meaning no one would trust him. Yet, how many "journalists" on CNN, MSCNB, ABC, CBS, Fox, etc., can anyone really call trustworthy now?

So Beck talks, he destroys potentially his radio career. But reporters on these other channels constantly lie (wikileaks, anyone?) and it's "all good." Massive double standards.
