DURING THE RECENT political conventions, several reporters were arrested. Watch the video above. Was there justification for the arrest in this case?
An Associated Press photographer from Philadelphia was arrested while covering an anti-war protest in Minnesota. Several others were picked up there as well (see the video below) and then released later in the day without charges being filed.
Before you react, process the information. A good journalist will recognize multiple sides of the story. Did the police feel threatened? Were they abusing their powers? Were they protecting the city? Were they protecting the interests of the powerful politicians?
Can you report this fairly? Can you be objective here?
