Bob Dole endorses federal shield law

Writing in the op-ed page of today's New York Times, Bob Dole expresses support for a federal shield law and concern over the jailing of Judith Miller.
"As someone with a long record of government service, I must admit that I did not always appreciate the inquisitive nature of the press. But I do understand that the purpose of a reporter's privilege is not to somehow elevate journalists above other segments of society. Instead, it is designed to help guarantee that the public continues to be well informed."
