Newshounds:

During yesterday morning's FOX & Friends Edith Ann "E.D." Hill threatened to reveal secret information about Bill Keller, editor of the New York Times.
E. D. HILL: Since Bill Keller is in the news now, wouldn't you consider him a newsworthy figure? Because I've heard some very interesting things about Bill Keller.
BRIAN KILMEADE: Like what?

HILL: They're secret!

STEVE DOOCY laughs.

HILL: But, you know what? Since Bill Keller is in the news, I think that the person ...

KILMEADE: Oh, good one!

HILL: ... who had someone uncover those secrets would be doing a public service, perhaps, by releasing them.

DOOCY: Was it Jayson Blair, who uncovered it?

HILL: No, it was not.
