Jailing journalists is unacceptable in a democracy. But that’s exactly
what is happening at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul,
Minnesota.

Award winning journalist and host of “Democracy Now” Amy Goodman was
arrested by St. Paul police while covering a protest outside the
Republican National Convention. Though clearly identified as press,
Goodman was charged with “obstruction of a legal process and interference
with a ‘peace officer.'” Two of her producers were arrested for “suspicion
of felony riot.”

To tell you that this arrest was brutal and upsetting simply doesn’t do it
justice. Watch this video

to see for yourself. Then take action.

I just e-mailed the presidents of CNN and NBC News (which oversees MSNBC)
to demand that their networks cover this important story. I hope you will
too.

Please have a look and take action.
