“Following the arrest of two journalists covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, some conservative media figures are attacking the reporters for being insufficiently deferential to police, doing “the opposite of journalism,” and trying to make the story about themselves.
Protests in Ferguson are ongoing following an August 9 incident that resulted in a police officer shooting and killing unarmed teenager Michael Brown. On August 13, Huffington Post reporter Ryan J. Reilly and Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery were both detained by police in a Ferguson McDonald’s.
On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough responded to a recap of the arrests by saying, “I’m the one that always gets in trouble, I’ll get in trouble here.” Pointing to his son, a reporter for the Daily News, Scarborough said, “If I saw that video and my son was the one that the police arrested after that episode, I’d say Joey, here’s a clue. When the cops tell you, for like the thirtieth time, ‘let’s go,’ you know what that means, son? It means let’s go. I’m sorry.”
He continued, suggesting Lowery wanted “to get on TV and have people talk about [him] the next day.””

Turkish journalist settles lawsuit over arrest at Ferguson protests
July 24, 2015 – 7:29 pm EDT
The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri filed the federal lawsuit last year in St. Louis on behalf of Bilgin Sasmaz, a New York-based journalist for the Turkish Anadolu Agency.
The lawsuit claimed Sasmaz was thrown to the ground by an unidentified county officer and arrested for “refusing to disperse” after photographing a St. Ann police officer who was pointing his rifle at protesters. Sasmaz said he first identified himself as a journalist.
On Monday, the ACLU of Missouri announced that journalists Trey Yingst and Bilgin Şaşmaz will not face charges by St. Louis County Police. Both were arrested while reporting from Ferguson, Missouri. According to the announcement, the county will help both journalists get the arrests removed from their records: here.
A Missouri man who said he was mistaken for a criminal, beaten by Ferguson cops and charged for bleeding on their uniforms can now continue his lawsuit over the alleged assault — nearly six years after the incident, a court ruled Tuesday. Henry Davis, 53, won a federal court appeal to reinstate his suit claiming three Ferguson officers violated his rights and used excessive force during a brutal 2009 arrest: here.
