Wolf forms First Amendment group

Josh Wolf, a San Francisco freelance blogger and photographer who has been jailed for more than seven months because he won't provide federal prosecutors with outtakes of a videotape he shot of an anarchist protest, is forming a group called Free the Media. In a letter to the Bay Guardian, Wolf says the group will "organize and agitate whenever and wherever the free-press guarantees under the Constitution are threatened." The group, which will have an online presence, will explore "the complex issues and controversies that continue to develop within this changing media landscape."
