A Colorado judge has decided that Fox News reporter Jana Winter won't have to testify just yet about the source who told her of Aurora shooter James Holmes's violent notebook. If the journal, which Winter exclusively reported was sent to Holmes's psychiatrist, is ultimately admitted as evidence in the case, Winter could potentially face jail time for refusing to betray the rules of her chosen profession, but for the time being she has won a reprieve.
