Interview: Supreme Court case examines use of TV news tapes

Print More

Vermont’s Supreme Court is hearing a case that could affect the way media outlets cover stories. Prosecutors want to identify people who rioted at the University of Vermont after the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Yankees in last fall’s American League Championship series, and they want television station WCAX to hand over un-aired videotape of the riot that could help them do just that. WCAX is refusing the request.

Mitch Wertlieb talks with Michael Donoghue, executive director of the Vermont Press Association and a journalism professor at Saint Michael’s College.
