The outcome of the issue should be to continue to keep shield law in place. With out shield law sources will be to afraid to come forward. It is important for sources to reveal information because journalist are the ones who inform the public of what is happening in our society all the way from government to whats going on in our backyards. Without them it would be easy for things to be corrupt. By giving journalist more privilege they are able to put out information that is important and having some protection is better than none.
