Journalism Under Fire

Journalism Under Fire It was just the other day when I watched a YouTube Video of a police officer in Ferguson Missouri leveling his weapon at a livestream journalist while screaming “I’m going to fucking kill you”, followed immediately by him being drug away by a female colleague while he responded to the question about his name by identifying himself as “Go fuck yourself”. Similarly, on the same day I read a news article where an Al-Jazeera America reporter was told by a police officer that he was going to bash their head in. Prior to these incidents, six different Read more »
