Josh Wolf has now been incarcerated longer than any other JOURNALIST in American history, for his refusal to supply a Grand Jury with video tape evidence they subpoenaed.
An interview with Josh was made with Democracy now on Monday. Listen to it here.
As a journalist/vlogger, I have followed this case with great apprehension and interest. There is a great need for a set of Federal Shield Laws for journalists, and a general change in society's perception of who journalists are.
Josh brings up an intriguing point in the interview, that we are moving closer to state sanctioned journalism - something that chills the bones of all journalists within a free society.
