Jim Taricani

Is this guy a hero?

I’m uncertain, as I know very little about the case, but the general gist I’ve gotten is that journalist Jim Taricani is facing jail time for not revealing the name of a source under court order.

Sounds mighty noble to me. I’m almost ashamed of the fact that after thinking about it for awhile, I began wondering if the guy didn’t even have a source, because he used false information or something.

I hope that he’s just a hero, though.

UPDATE: I’ve gotten word that this guy is no hero. I regret writing before I knew the facts, which admittedly, I still don’t know. Anywho…
