Former US Attorney David Iglesias: 'Loyalty Has Limits'

At Saturday's First Amendment Luncheon, the former federal prosecutor for New Mexico who helped sparked the scandal presently engulfing U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and the Bush Administration discussed loyalty, politics, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) with Santa Fe Reporter editor Julia Goldberg. "I'm still processing the damage that could be done to the rule of law [by the administration]," he said. Among other things, Iglesias also said that John Ashcroft's staff at the DOJ was older and more experienced than Gonzales', and that Gonzales led a shift in the department from "working for the people" to "working for the White House." We have three video clips available from the luncheon. Part one is embedded below; part two can be found here, and part three, here.

Former U.S. Attorney to Speak at First Amendment Lunch

David C. Iglesias is the former federal prosecutor for the District of New Mexico whose revelation about receiving an improper phone call from Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM) was the spark that ignited the scandal presently engulfing U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez and the Bush Administration. Iglesias will join us for lunch in Portland on Saturday, June 16, for our annual celebration of a free press, where he will be interviewed by Santa Fe Reporter editor Julia Goldberg. You've probably heard about Iglesias' role in the DOJ scandal, but did you know that the former United States Navy Reserve Captain was the basis for the character played by Tom Cruise in the movie A Few Good Men?

Editor of Santa Fe Reporter Blogs on "Ethical Editing"

Julia Goldberg ignited a brushfire on the Editing mailing list earlier this week when she sought advice regarding an angry letter sent by a teacher who was upset by a recent article in the Reporter about her school (which Goldberg felt she had "completely misunderstood"). The letter contained the kind of spelling and grammatical errors that the Reporter would normally correct for publication. What should she do? Most AAN editors advised her to avoid vindictiveness and adhere to the paper's regular letters policy. She took their advice and corrected the mistakes, and saved her revenge for her blog.

AAN Papers Cover Iraq War's Psychological Impact on Veterans

The article will appear in more than 40 AAN papers in coming weeks. Many of the participating weeklies will supplement the article -- AAN's latest collaborative story project -- with additional reporting to reflect the issue's regional and local impact. The collective stories can be found in a dedicated section of AltWeeklies.com. (FULL STORY)
