Mapping the arrest of journalists at Occupy events


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)
