The Land Of The Not-So Free

So much for the land of the free; video blogger Josh Wolf is in jail for refusing to hand over footage of a riot in San Francisco. Please support him and - all of you in the US - don't let this creeping McCarthyism erode your constitutional rights.

The significance in an era where anyone can be a video journalist is tremendous; coming from a country with over two million surveillance cameras (the UK) there is some irony in that They can watch you, but you can't watch Them. Big Brother stamps on little brother..
