INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Associated Press Executive Editor Kathleen Carroll says she is looking forward to the start of new Obama administration efforts to provide better press protections, months after the widespread collection of AP phone records.
Department of Justice officials acknowledged in the spring they seized records for 21 AP phone lines during an investigation into who provided information for an AP story in May 2012 on a foiled al-Qaida bomb plot in Yemen.
Carroll criticized the "overly broad" nature of the information the government gathered but praised the administration's decision to approve a new policy protecting journalists after widespread public criticism.
Carroll's comments came during a discussion at the Associated Press Media Editors' 80th annual conference in Indianapolis on the question of whether journalism can be a crime.
