Feds Ask Court to Jail BALCO Reporters

9150280-barry-bonds.jpgFederal prosecutors have asked that two San Francisco Chronicle reporters be jailed for refusing to reveal who leaked Barry Bonds’ grand jury testimony to them, news sources have reported. Setting aside for the moment whether the whoe grand jury secrecy thing has a bit too much the scent of a Star Chamber, it seems to me that sending these guys to jail for any length of time, let alone 18 months, which is what the jack boots prosecutors have asked, makes zero sense. This is tseroids in baseball we’re talking about, not al-Quaeda. Since when does the question of whether Barry was juiced merit federal law enforcement attention? Silly.
