"Democracy Now! radio host Amy Goodman and two producers were arrested yesterday while covering demonstrations at the Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn.," reports the Washington Post. "Goodman was released after being held for over three hours, but is still waiting to hear when Sharif Abdel Kouddous and Nicole Salazar would be released." A release from Democracy Now! says Goodman was arrested "while attempting to free two...producers who were being unlawfully detained." According to the release, the producers were arrested "while they carried out their journalistic duties in covering street demonstrations at the Republican National Convention." Both stories include video of Goodman's arrest.
