Journalist excepted?

According to Powerline, 18 U.S.C. § 798 of the deals with the disclosure of classified information explicitly:

"a) Whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, furnishes, transmits, or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized person, or publishes, or uses in any manner prejudicial to the safety or interest of the United States or for the benefit of any foreign government to the detriment of the United States any classified information— "

"Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both."

Where does it say "journalist excepted?"

Thanks Powerline.
