Fox News Reporter: If Forced To Reveal Sources ‘My career will be over’

Foxnews.com reporter Jana Winter is due back in a Colorado courtroom today, fighting a push from a judge to reveal sources who gave her information regarding the Aurora shooter.

Reuters’ Keith Coffman obtained Winter’s affidavit, which lays out how important the decision is, not just for journalists generally, but Winter particularly.

Winter said in an affidavit that if she was compelled to divulge the names of the sources, her reputation in the industry would be “irreparably tarnished”.

“If I am forced to reveal the identities of persons whom I have promised to shield from public exposure, simply put, I will be unable to function effectively in my profession, and my career will be over,” she wrote.
