In what could have implications for a high-stakes leak prosecution, Attorney General Eric Holder promised Tuesday that “no reporter” would be jailed for doing his or her work.  

Holder’s remarks to a media advisory group come as the Obama administration has pressed New York Times reporter James Risen to identify a confidential source for a 2006 book, State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration.
