The latest casualties in the government’s war on journalism:

James Risen – a New York Times journalist who exposed the Bush administration’s covert actions abroad and is being threatened with jail by the Obama gang for not revealing sources.

Glenn Greenwald – the independent journalist who gave us the Edward Snowden story and who now cannot return to America without fear of arrest.

Julian Assange of WikiLeaks, holed up in a friendly embassy: Fox News reporter James Rosen, who had his emails read and was tracked by authorities, along with an entire team of AP reporters. These are the victims of our government’s assault on the First Amendment.

Years ago we warned that it would come to this: that’s why we’ve been fighting to preserve independent journalism since 1998 – but we can’t do it without your help. Please make your tax-deductible contribution to today – because liberty matters.
