Revealing a source: A reporter refuses

A female reporter, Rachel Armstrong, jailed for contempt for not revealing her source regarding the article she wrote about the ignorance of the U.S President to the findings of a covert CIA operative when ordering air strikes against Venezuela last October 12.

Rachel names the agent, Erica Van Doren thus, chaos descends on Van Doren’s life. The government moves quickly to force Rachel to name her source but she refused so she was jailed for contempt.

A man leaves his family to go to jail to protect a principle, and they name a holiday after him. A man leaves his children to go fight in a war, and they erect a monument to him. A woman does the same thing, and she’s a monster.” Rachel said.
