Next on American History TV, a discussion on World War II reporting and censorship, and the experience of Associated Press reporter Ed Kennedy. 

Kennedy was fired in 1945 after he defied a military embargo by reporting on Germany’s surrender a day before the official announcement. 

In early May of 2012, the Associated Press apologized for firing Kennedy.
