Restrictions abound for reporters covering court-martial
Military Reporters and Editors: "Is the military being too restrictive in the ground rules some reporters are being required to sign before cover courts-martial?

That question is the crux of a recent story by a reporter covering the murder trial of an Army soldier accused of killing other soldiers with a grenade attack just days before the invasion of Iraq. Reporter Jeff Schogol stated he had to agree to 14 conditions before he was allowed to cover the trial of Sgt. Hasan Akbar at Fort Bragg.

Schogol reported he 'can't talk to any soldiers or civilians on the base without permission' and 'when I go to the men's room, my escort waits patiently outside.'"
