Today, Free Press is filing a letter with the DOJ calling on them to revise their guidelines to better protect press freedom - with a special focus on open government, transparency and independent journalism. This is the outcome of the series of semi-off-the-record meetings that AG Holder held (we weren't invited to those) after President Obama ordered a review of the agencies action re the AP phone records and Fox News journalist Rosen, in late May.
Here is a link to my blog post on this: Free Press Tells the DOJ to Protect All Journalists - Pros and Citizens, Indie and Mainstream.
