Journalists and the World Court

Friday, July 12, 2002

Former Washington Post reporter Jonathan Randal has been subpoenaed at a war crimes tribunal in The Hague. Despite Randal’s protests, the court is refusing to grant any journalist a privilege against testifying during trials that do not involve unpublished information or off the record sources. Mike talks to former war correspondent Peter Maass, who wrote an op-ed on journalists being subpoenaed.
