AbstractWhen a AIDS educator contacts a Miami newspaper editor wanting to print an announcement telling people where to go for AIDS testing, she also lets slip the identity of a bar owner who tested positive for AIDS and was known to be extremely sexually active. Should the newspaper print this information, and potentially alienate a source?
