Linda Deutsch

Linda Deutsch was named a special correspondent of the Associated Press in 1992 in recognition of her long career as AP’s premier courtroom reporter. Deutsch has covered many of the most famous trials of the last 25 years, including those of Sirhan Sirhan, Charles Manson, Patty Hearst, Angela Davis, and OJ Simpson. The Simpson trial brought Deutsch’s face and byline into millions of homes, and she eventually co-authored the AP book, “Verdict: The Chronicle of the OJ Simpson Trial.” She has received many awards, including the Society of Professional Journalist’s First Amendment Award for her work in the cause of freedom of information.
