Since the mid-twentieth century, in different parts of the world many legal disputes have occurred as a result of tending court orders that the identity of the source of journalistic information invoked as a justification, it is revealed its vital importance for the resolution of a particular case. In this situation, journalists rightly had invoked as an impediment in such order his professional right to preserve the anonymity of its source. In Argentina, this right is guaranteed in the last paragraph of art. 43 of the Constitution which expressly states that "it will not affect the secrecy of journalistic information sources." Now, from the revelations of Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden, it has taken note of how the intelligence agencies (such as NSA) and private companies monitor all kinds of online activity of any person, including those who are, of course, journalists. Does the reservation of the identity of journalistic sources deserve absolute protection or, on the contrary, must yield to a particular situation in which, eg., is in the national security game? Should it be allowed to intelligence agencies that may interfere or access any kind of communication of journalists without a judicial authorization with basement in the potential insecurity? What could a journalist do if Internet goes down to keep in touch with their source? How?
