Messing with the media

Journalists like to think of, and mostly comport themselves as above the fray observers. But now that law enforcement is targeting media who cover the protests it's becoming personal. With the arrest count now at 27, you can see a subtle change in the narrative as obviously credentialed journalists are busted.

Even the ultra-right wing Daily Caller is suddenly more sympathetic when their own people get roughed up by the cops.

Thinking it would be really ironic if brutal police suppression of dissent, and now of the press, is what finally brings liberal and conservative activists into an alliance.
