Web Exclusive: Cops versus reporters in Ferguson

In a conversation with Brian Stelter, Ryan Devereaux and David Klinger share differing points of view on the tension between journalists and the authorities there.

Devereaux is a reporter for The Intercept who was arrested while covering the protests in Ferguson, Missouri earlier in the week, and Klinger is a former police officer and an associate professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis.

Among the questions they consider: did journalists get in the way and make a bad situation worse during the unrest in Ferguson, or were they doing their jobs responsibly?

    I personally feel that something should be answered. Such as,… Is this observer theory the cause of the arrest of many media reporters, for being to nosy ?! If so what is being done to protect the rights of these reporters?
