Jailed American Blogger Denied Thanksgiving Furlough

Josh Wolf, the video blogger behind bars for refusing to hand over unpublished source material, won't be enjoying a home-cooked meal today.

A federal judge on Tuesday denied Wolf's request for a Thanksgiving furlough, according to a court order issued by a U.S. District Judge. Josh Wolf, a 24-year-old freelance journalist, made headlines last summer as the first known blogger to be thrown into federal prison for not cooperating with judiciary officials.

One of the Internet's earliest video bloggers, Wolf refused to testify before a U.S. grand jury and also refused to hand over unpublished video footage he shot during a clash between San Francisco police and anti-G8 protesters in July 2005.

Since Stephen Harper is SO very concerned about Human Rights violations in China, perhaps he should pick up the phone to his buddy George W. and ask him why this young blogger REMAINS IN A FEDERAL PRISON.
