We are all equal before the law: a press card (presuming she even has one) and the occasional one-off assignment from the NY Times don’t mean you get to do what you want. It would be a strange and scary world if they did.

So, not only do high-ranking members of the New York City Police Department mace innocent protestors, they also arrest New York Times journalists doing their jobs.
Does that idiot mayor Michael Bloomberg realize that he and the NYPD are just agitating the protestors more?

Pretty much. Don’t arrest journalists. It’s bad for everyone involved.


The New York Times will not classify someone who is not on assignment for them as a “freelancer.”  She was on assignment.
And a New York City press card — or a “press pass,” as it’s also known as in NYC — entitles the bearer certain rights above and beyond those of a civilian, including the right to photograph or otherwise report on events taking place at locations under NYPD jurisdiction, such as crime scenes, parades, and protests.
The same likely applies in other municipalities in countries where there is freedom of the press.  You know who should know that?  Michael fucking Bloomberg, whose namesake company is itself a media company that covers, among other places, New York City.

Something worth remembering: It’s really hard to get one of those press passes. NYPD does not give them out easily. Instructions on how to obtain one are here.

"Netflix wants to allow subscribers to watch its video on Facebook. But its plans face a stumbling block in Washington. A law called the Video Privacy Protection Act prohibits the release of information about what movies a person is renting. That law would have to be lifted in the United States."

Alright, who gave this Hurricane Irene photo better play, the WaPo or the NYT?

News design has gone boring.
