Shield the Source
San Antonio Reporter Endures Jail to Uncover
Corruption and Murder
by Brian Karem
When police officer Gary Williams is gunned down in the streets of San Antonio, reporter Brian Karem's sources help him obtain the sole interview with Henry Hernandez, who confesses to killing the officer but swears it was self-defense. Karem is subpoenaed but refuses to reveal his sources. Cited for contempt, he becomes the first reporter in more than a decade to be jailed for protecting a confidential source.
"Journalists will applaud Karem's stand."
