      Stephen Robert Morse

      Stephen Robert Morse is a Tow-Knight Fellow in Entrepreneurial Journalism at the City University of New York. He founded and has contributed to a diverse list of publications ranging from Mother Jones to Al Jazeera English. From 2009 to 2011, he was an Erasmus Mundus scholar, sponsored by the European Union, studying journalism, media, and globalization. Oh yeah, and one time he accidentally started a multi-year congressional investigation by catching members of the New Black Panther Party on tape, blocking a polling place in Philly.

Journalist and documentarian Stephen Robert Morse is in Perugia, Italy, reporting exclusively for The Daily Caller on the murder appeal of American student Amanda Knox. Morse will be live-tweeting the court proceedings as circumstances permit.

In December 2009 an Italian court convicted Knox of sexually assaulting and murdering her British roommate in Italy. She has steadfastly maintained her innocence.

The appeal will likely center on reconsideration of forensic evidence that Knox’s legal team says was mishandled, contaminated, and ignored. Morse reported September 14¬†on growing concerns about the competence of Italian forensic police, and on a police wiretap recording which emerged after Knox’s conviction and points to her innocence.
