This quote is from: Scott Armstrong

    We don't ask for the approval from the government to print things. But by the same token, we do want to know if there's something that would hurt someone [if we disclose certain information] -- and what it is. Then we make very careful decisions and talk about it with dozens of people [including their editors and top government officials] before the actual story runs. It could conceivably be too sensitive: say, if you find out -- through one means or another -- that somebody had a spy by a certain name in a foreign government and that person would be immediately killed if it were revealed.
