Foundation seeks funding for Bradley Manning trial court reporter

The Freedom of the Press Foundation created a crowdsourcing campaign to pay a professional court reporter to transcribe the trial of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, according to a May 9 article on Politico. The Freedom of Press Foundation said in its press release, “This campaign aims to fully fund a court stenographer, who will be credentialed with a media organization and attend the trial in the court’s media room. The court stenographer will produce a transcript of the trial, and as soon as the transcripts are available, the Freedom of the Press Foundation will post them online for journalists and the public.”
