Privileging the Press: Confidential Sources, Journalism Ethics and
the First Amendment

"Shepard’s ambition in taking on the two disciplines of law and professional ethics has … generated a wealth of historic detail and ready case studies that will serve well scholars or teachers of freedom of the press.”- Law and Politics Book Review

“This comprehensive litany of triumphs and failures ... pull(s) together the many threads that make up the stormy history of the journalists’ privilege into one compact volume. If I were still working at a law firm, I’d make it required reading for any new associates who want to practice media law.”- Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly
