"So Now a Blogger If in Court Has the Same Rights as a Journalists?"

"Remember when Crystal Cox made the blogosphere news about having to pay an unusually large monetary amount for writing an article about a corporation’s employee? Apparently the corporation had sued her for defamation. And the court agreed with the corporation despite Ms. Cox assertion that the requests to reveal her sources violated her first amendment rights as well as her right to keep her sources confidential. Now a federal court has overturned that decision remanding it back to be tried in court again with her having those rights in place."
