A recent Fox News story on the Illinois law making it a felony to audio record the police from Fox News anchor and attorney Jamie Colby and Fox News reporter Mike Tobin not only stressed the arguments in favor of the law from the police, but also left out any mention of the basic First Amendment interest in monitoring government employees conducting official business in a public place, as I show in this video.

The clips I use of Fox News anchor and attorney Jamie Colby and Fox News reporter Mike Tobin come from a longer segment of Fox News' March 12, 2012, broadcast of "America's Newsroom" available online at

The clip I use of Bill O'Reilly comes from my own November 2011 video titled "Fox News Misreports Pepper Spray Legality?" available at
