["Time" editor-in-chief Norm PEARLSTINE†- says we had no choice after the Supreme Court spoke.] The reaction of the "New York Times," which stands behind its reporter Judith Miller, to "Time"'s decision noted. [In taped interview from Washington, Center for Media & Public Affairs Matthew FELLING†- says the story has been disjointed from the beginning so there is no good guy & bad guy in the story where everyone is anonymous; states the case for journalists needing anonymous sources & the duty to stand behind promises of anonymity; suggests CNN's Robert Novak may have a special arrangement & what the prosecutor is looking for.]
