While I trust The Post to make good decisions, I also trust the attorney general to do so. However, if any “reporter” discloses classified information that is harmful to the safety or national security of our nation, he or she should be prosecuted. Freedom of the press, like freedom of speech, has limits. For example, you could be prosecuted if you publish the names of our nation’s spies in other countries and get them arrested or killed because you believe the public should know about our spying activities or you just want to make a name for yourself.
The courts exist to decide these kinds of cases.
