RTNA condemns San Francisco Police Department Raids on Journalist’s Home

The Radio and Television News Association of Southern California issued a statement condemning the raid on San Francisco Freelance Journalist Brian Carmody’s home and the offices of North Bay News by the San Francisco Police Department. The SFPD conducted its raid after Carmody refused to identify a source who leaked to him an internal police report regarding the death of Public Defender Jeff Adachi.

The Los Angeles Press Club stands in solidarity with RTNA and wholeheartedly endorse its position on the impropriety of SFPD’s tactics in this leak investigation. Reporters should not be forced to identify their confidential sources.
