Julia Kennedy Cochran, daughter of former AP correspondent Ed Kennedy, addresses the audience at Associated Press Headquarters in New York during a panel discussion entitled “Ed Kennedy’s War: V-E Day, Censorship and The Associated Press,” Tuesday, May 8, 2012. Edward Kennedy was fired by the AP after he became the first journalist to send a firsthand account of the German surrender in 1945. It had already been reported on the radio in Europe. Kennedy defied officials who told journalists to keep it secret for 36 hours as a condition of witnessing it. (AP Photo/Mary Altaffer) less
