"Mere Silence Doesn't Invoke Miranda, Justices Rule": Adam Liptak will have this article Wednesday in The New York Times.

Robert Barnes of The Washington Post has a news update headlined "Supreme Court: Suspects must invoke right to remain silent in interrogations."

In Wednesday's edition of The Los Angeles Times, David G. Savage will have an article headlined "Supreme Court backs off strict enforcement of Miranda rights; Once a suspect has been informed of his rights, he has the duty to invoke them, the justices say; The decision reinstates a murder conviction based largely on a suspect's one-word answer to police."

In Wednesday's edition of The Wall Street Journal, Jess Bravin will have an article headlined "Justices Narrow Miranda Rule."

Warren Richey of The Christian Science Monitor has an article headlined "Supreme Court: Suspects must assert Miranda right to remain silent; The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that criminal suspects must clearly state that they don't want to talk with police to exercise their Miranda rights; Silence during interrogation is not enough."

And this evening's broadcast of NPR's "All Things Considered" contained an audio segment entitled "High Court: Speak Up If You Want To Remain Silent" featuring Nina Totenberg.
