The Grey Album is less great in retrospect

Josh Wolf

I've been suspicious of this Josh Wolf story since the beginning, but I've been a little afraid to voice it because it sounds like he's fighting the good fight. But now that he's out we can also see for ourselves why he was in jail for 226 days because... HE POSTED THE FOOTAGE THAT HE DIDN'T WANT A GRAND JURY TO SEE TO HIS VLOG? Fer chrissakes. Sorry, but now I'm even more suspicious of this than before. It's too long to explain here (me link blog; you word blog), but this whole thing treads on too much dangerous ground, potentially capable of bringing down so much that First Amendment lawyers have fought for. I don't think you people realize what you're fighting for.

makes me wish I were a San Francisco police officer, those guys appeared to be more patient than I certainly would have been.

i could be wrong, but im pretty sure he had that footage posted up on his blog before the police came knocking on his door demanding the original tapes. all he did was try to protect his sources and original materials. the same respect is generally respect in the mainstream media. the authorities just thought they could intimidate him cause they thought he was just some random kid.
