Hats off to Louis D. Boccardi, The Associated Press' President and Chief Executive, who is standing up to Bush and his League of Monkeys (including John Ashcroft and in this case, Senator Robert Torricelli, D-NJ) concerning freedom of the press. Our Government subpoenaed a reporter's home telephone records and Boccardi is fighting for symbolism and journalistic freedom, stating that "...symbolism is important in the delicate intersection of press and government in our nation."
