High School Boot Camp
See what the Press Club's High School "Boot Camp" is all about!
The San Francisco Peninsula Press Club holds a "boot camp" every fall for hundreds of high school students who are studying journalism. The event takes place on the campus of the College of San Mateo. Above is a report by the college's newspaper and website, The San Matean, on the event. The report, by Jeffrey Gonzalez and photographer Mario Ayala, includes an interview with attorney Jim Wagstaffe, whose is an expert in media law.
The ability of the media to get 911 tapes is under attack again, the LA Times and other media outlets report. Assemblywoman Norma Torres, D-Pomona, says the recent release of a frantic call made by Demi Moore’s friends before the actress was rushed to the hospital shows the need to give callers privacy. Torres says such calls should be kept private the way medical records are. Torres, however, is a former 911 operator. And keeping 911 tapes private would prevent the public from hearing emergency operators who make serious errors in the handling of calls. Earlier attempts to make 911 calls secret have failed in the Legislature.
