freedom of the police trumps freedom of the press?

Amy Goodman and two Democracy Now! producers were arrested while reporting on protests outside the Republican Convention in St. Paul, Minnesota today.

You think it would be different in Edmonton, if you walked up to cops on the street and started mouthing off to them about how they'd made a big mistake by arresting someone else? Oh ye of short memory...
If Goodman really wanted to help, she should have gone down to the police station with a lawyer in tow. She wasn't trying to help - she was trying to provoke an incident - and she succeeded.

She pulled away from police and didn't do what they said. What do you expect in a situation like that?
