San Francisco Chronicle
A federal judge says Chronicle reporters Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams must disclose their sources of grand jury testimony by Barry Bonds and other athletes about the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Editor Phil Bronstein says: “We will not comply with the government’s effort, which we believe is not in the best interests of an informed public.”
