NYC tried to get raw film footage shot by venerable, longtime, PBS documentary filmmaker Ken Burns, included in his research for a film about the five men exonerated in the Central Park jogger rape case, by claiming Mr. Burns was NOT a journalist, and did not have any of the priveleges associated with a free press.

“The request was connected to a $250 million federal lawsuit filed by the men against the city nine years ago after their sentences were vacated. The attack on a 28-year-old investment banker occurred in April 1989, when she was found in the park after being beaten and raped while jogging. She was in a coma for 12 days and was left with permanent damage. The men were exonerated after a man already jailed for other crimes confessed, and DNA evidence supported his claim.”
