THEY TOLD ME THAT IF GEORGE W. BUSH WERE RE-ELECTED, news crews would be arrested for photographing fat-cat political donors. And they were right!
Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic Senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown's Palace Hotel. Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, who works with the ABC News investigative unit.
You can't make this stuff up. And, once again, this just illustrates why we need freedom-to-photograph legislation. Thanks to reader Kevin Greene for the link.
