Imprisoned Video Journalist Josh Wolf Captured on Video
Fri Mar 16 2007 (Updated 04/03/07)
Local Cable Program to Broadcast Video to Refute Judge and Prosecutor
Bay Media Lab host Howard Vicini will present video evidence during a Friday night broadcast on San Francisco cable access which will cover the case against vBlogger Josh Wolf, who has been held in coercive confinement for more than 200 days, a new U.S. record for a journalist, for refusing to turn over raw video he shot of a San Francisco protest rally in 2005, that was subpoenaed by a federal grand jury. The live broadcast titled, “Freedom of Expression, New Challenges, New Sacrifice,” will feature discussion among media activists and journalists concerning the Wolf case and others that have resulted in journalists facing federal subpoenas and the prospect of jail time.

Guests include Executive Director of Oakland-based Media Alliance, Jeff Perlstein; reporter & radio producer, Sarah Olson; Journalism Chair of the Bay Area Chapter of the National Writers Union, Richard Knee ; journalist & commercial media producer, Ralph Miller; reporter for the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Sarah Phelan; Josh Wolf's father, Len Harrison; and members of the Free Josh Wolf Coalition, Andy Blue, Julian Davis, Amy De Reyes, and Njeri Sims.

Vicini will also present a prerecorded interview with the individual who shot the video in which she asserts that she and her partner were contacted at home by FBI agents twice before agents seemed to lose interest after the subpoena was served on Wolf. This, too, supports a claim by Wolf's lawyer, First Amendment advocate Martin Garbus who says the government isn't really after information about the alleged crimes committed at the demonstration.
