“The Judy-as-First Amendment-hero angle is the easy first response to the story. It’s the conventional wisdom — and the mainstream media like nothing better than going with the flow of the ‘CW.’ It’s also the path of least resistance. … Just hit the hot key on your computer and out pops the jailed-journalist-as-martyr story. It’s much harder to swim against the current, to rethink, to reexamine, to reopen closed doors. And you risk stepping on toes — maybe even the toes of people you socialize with.”
