Investigative Journalist Robert Dreyfuss To Assess Risks to Activists during this Anti-Terror Age

Investigative journalist Robert Dreyfuss will speak on "TheŻ Cops Are Watching You--and the implications for antiwar activists" on Wed., May 7, 2003 at 7:30 p.m. at Stony Run Friends Meetinghouse, 5116 N. Charles Street. A donation of $5 is suggested, but no one will be turned away.

Dreyfuss, a contributing editor at The Nation and Mother Jones magazines, is a senior correspondent for The American Prospect and a frequent contributor to Rolling Stone. Prior to becoming a full-time investigative reporter, he was the director of public affairs at Public Citizen, the consumer group. A 1970 graduate of Columbia University, he is a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, Investigative Reporters and Editors, and Washington Independent Writers.

"I have no patience or interest in gossipy insider Washington culture-the journalism cliques, the correspondents' dinners, the National Press Foundation, the people who wear tuxedos," Dreyfuss told the Columbia Journalism Review during an interview showcasing his investigative work. "They're not even reporters, they're people to be investigated."

Dreyfuss has plenty to say about civil liberties, campaign financing, corporate corruption, lobbyists, the "War on Drugs," gun control, tobacco marketing overseas, and press freedom-to name just a few topics. He's interviewed Tom DeLay, George W. Bush, Trent Lott, and John McCain, and written about Agent Orange, Social Security privatization, and the NRA. Dreyfuss's important talk on May 7 will focus on what he has learned about police surveillance activities in the U.S., and the effects these may have on activists.

Dreyfuss's appearance in Baltimore is sponsored by:
