New York Times journalists detained in East Texas

By Cody Lillich clillich@kltv.com

Two journalists were detained while reporting on the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline.

New York Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy confirms the incident happened Wednesday in East Texas. She said Denver-based New York Times reporter Dan Frosch and freelance photographer Brandon Thibodeaux were allowed on private property by the landowner to report on the recent controversy surrounding the pipeline.

Frosch and Thibodeaux were detained by TransCanada security and local police, according to Murphy. The two were held for ten minutes, then told to leave. Spokeswoman Eileen Murphy says the two followed the order to leave to avoid arrest.

The New York Times did not disclose where in East Texas the incident occurred Wednesday.
