Bloggers: protected as journalists from revealing sources

I posted before about Apple's attempt to get bloggers to reveal their source of leaked info about an Apple product.

The court has just refused to force the bloggers to give up their source. Hooray for them.

So when it comes to reporting news, it looks like generally bloggers can be protected as legitimate journalists - at least in the USA. Which I think is as it should be.
