Josh Stearns of Free Press has been tracking the arrest of journalists at Occupy events for the past several months. Now he’s put together a Google map with names, places and, where available, video. An interesting project and a valuable resource.

    How many of these are bogus arrests (where the journalist is merely an observer and the cops arrested them anyways) and how many are cases where a protester who happens to be/claims to be a journalist is arrested along with the other protesters? (which is as it should be, since journalists shouldn’t have any magic first amendment rights hoi polloi don’t have — which isn’t to say the arrests themselves were necessarily justified)
