Feds-1, Free Press-0

What Now, Norman?

Well, well, well.

Even though TIME Editor in Chief Norman Pearlstine sold out his journalists and surrendered reporter Matt Cooper's notes to a federal prosecutor, that prosecutor -- Patrick Fitzgerald -- said today he still wants Cooper and The New York Times' Judith Miller behind bars.

And forget home detention.

So now the feds are roaming through notes from confidential sources Cooper pledged to protect. AND Cooper faces jail time.

If the president wanted to force whoever leaked the information about Valeria Plame to the press---and by some reports there were at least two people who leaked---he could.

But, Bush has not. He doesn't give a shit.
