SPJ responds to DOJ seizure of AP phone records

SPJ President Sonny Albarado today condemned the Department of Justice’s secret seizure of two months’ worth of business and personal phone records of reporters for The Associated Press.

Calling the action “shameful and outrageous,” Albarado said the incident once again points up the need for a federal shield law.

The full text of Albarado’s statement is available at the SPJ website.
