Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Jan. 6 prisoner accuses DOJ of denying news interviews, threats of discipline for press calls”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Department of Justice is restricting Capitol riot defendant Edward Jacob Lang from conducting media interviews while in pre-trial detention.

Mr. Lang told The Washington Times that he received a “notice of media violation” from the Alexandria, Virginia, detention facility where he is being held after conducting an over-the-phone interview with The Epoch Times.

The notice said the interview was “a violation of U.S. Marshal’s policy,” according to Mr. Lang, who co-produced the documentary “The Truth About January 6th.” 

The notice, he said, warned that “conducting media interviews via phone, in person, or by video” without prior approval “may result in disciplinary action” and further restrictions on Mr. Lang’s privileges while in detention.

“This is a constitutional issue at its very core,” Mr. Lang said in a phone interview which presumably could result in disciplinary action against him. “A real human being is being silenced in America like never before.”
