A reporter-source shield law is back on the table in Hawaii after a meeting between the attorney general and a media representative at which a compromise was worked out. The new draft would grant a qualified privilege for reporters to protect their sources and would define journalists to include bloggers and citizen journalists when their work is in the public interest. The new draft now goes to legislative committees for discussion. (4/23/08)
