Were journalists targeted in Ferguson?

In the above video, Ryan Reilly, a reporter for The Huffington Post, tells Brian Stelter about his experience being arrested while covering protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

In the interview, Reilly reiterated that he doesn't want to be the news, he wants to cover the news. But he said the publicity about his arrest has had one positive outcome:

"Often, when I am interviewing people, they recognize me for what happened and they say, 'Oh, you're that reporter.' So it's added a different interaction with people I'm reporting on that I had in the past. And perhaps, probably, it's opened people up to speaking to me, who maybe wouldn't have been comfortable speaking with me in the past."

Reilly expressed disappointment with "armchair critics" who have questioned whether he and Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post somehow provoked their arrest. "Any good journalist who was in that situation, the exact same thing would have happened to them. I'm 100 percent sure of that," Reilly said.

He also said that despite his repeated attempts, he has still not been told the names of the officers who took him into custody.

    Your coverage on Ferguson in very one sided. When your anchor says that the young man was gunned down by a police officer is an editorial on the news. She has no idea what happened. As for the coverage Sunday night. It is hard to know where to start. One of your reporters said that gunfire came from the protesters. That was not pursued. However, the fact that police used tear gas was stated over and over again. If someone was shooting at you, what would you do? I worked in and taught television news for many years. Broadcasting news must be impartial, yours is not. And Jessie Jackson, really. He was not there, he is just pushing is own agenda as always.

      I wouldn't put any weight on anything this idiot reports. Did u see his twitter post where he post a picture of orange ear plugs and tried to pass them of saying he believed they were rubber bullets. What an idiot.
