Arrests of Press at RNC

While I heard a tiny blip of news during the Republican National Convention that Amy Goodman of Democracy Now had been arrested, I didn't hear any follow up to that story. On the Media recently interviewed Ms. Goodman about her experience at the RNC and her thoughts on the repercussions of the systematic arrest of journalists demonstrated at that event. Do listen to the audio rather than just reading the transcript. The clip of her producer being arrested is terrifying.

Democracy Now has compiled news accounts of the arrests.
