§Imprisoned Journalist Josh Wolf Released After Record 225 Days in Jail
by Democracy Now (reposted)
Independent journalist Josh Wolf has been released from prison after spending over 225 days behind bars. The 24-year-old Wolf spent more time in jail than any journalist in US history for protecting his sources. In the first broadcast interview since his release, Wolf joins us from San Francisco.
---

After a record seven and a half months behind bars, San Francisco video blogger Josh Wolf has been released. Wolf walked out of a federal prison in Dublin, California Tuesday after prosecutors dropped a key demand that had made him the longest-jailed journalist for protecting a source in US history. Wolf was jailed on August 1st of last year when he refused to turn over video that he had shot of an anti-G8 demonstration in San Francisco.

Wolf's release was okayed after prosecutors agreed to drop their effort to make him testify before a grand jury and identify protesters shown on his video. In return, Wolf posted the uncut video on his website, gave prosecutors a copy and testified he knew nothing about violent incidents at the protest.

In a national broadcast exclusive, Josh Wolf joins us now from a studio in San Francisco.
