Although the Illinois State Constitution does not contain express language establishing a reporter's privilege, it does guarantee freedom of the press in article 1, section 4. In drafting the Statute, the Illinois legislature incorporated these free press guarantees. See People ex. rel. Scott v. Silverstein, 89 Ill. App. 3d 1039, 1042, 412 N.E.2d 692 (1980), rev'd in part on other grounds, 87 Ill. 2d 167, 429 N.E.2d 483 (1981), Villeda v. Prairie Material Sales Inc., 17 Media L. Rep. 2289, 2293 (Ill. Cir. Ct. 1990).
