"NYT Journalists Detained at Keystone Pipeline Protest"

"Two New York Times journalists were detained briefly by law enforcement officers while reporting on demonstrations against the Keystone XL pipeline in northeast Texas, the newspaper said Thursday."

"The journalists were on private property Wednesday with the permission of the landowner to report on protesters there, Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy said. The journalists were reporter Dan Frosch and Brandon Thibodeaux, a freelance photographer who was on assignment for the Times, Murphy said.

Demonstrators near Winnsboro in northeast Texas have for weeks taken up residence in trees in the path of contractors for TransCanada, the company building the southern portion of the Keystone XL pipeline."
