Jailed Blogger Josh Wolf — Record Breaker?

October 16th, 2006 by Larry Smith

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that SF-based videoblogger Josh Wolf is “well on his way to becoming the longest-jailed journalist in U.S. history.” Wolf, 24, was tossed in the clink for refusing to turn over video he shot during an anti-globalization protest and the ensuing scuffle between protesters and police. He’s now on day 57 in a federal prison in Dublin, CA.

Josh is updating his blog with the help of some friends (there’s no computer access in most Federal prisons) who are posting his letters on his own site here, where you can also get info on where to send donations and well wishes.
