It was a very sacarstic comment, given by the fact that most time i see journalist interview Juststopoil/instinction rebelljon etc. they act like spoke person not journalist.Did you read the thread?
They are journalists, with press credentials.
They were held in custody for 13 hours having to give rigorous details of their work, asked to reveal their sources and even the PIN for their phone.
The other guy had his house searched and his daughter’s iPad was seized. This is not acceptable behaviour in a democracy but we can thank Patel and others for this erosion of civil rights.
And it won’t stop here.
We need to get these fascists out of government once and for all.
That mentality isn't new, you then can go on and claim the law has disadvantaged them but that's backward thinking. The law was changed in the first place because journalist are nice when it suits them and critical when it suits them, well the job of a journalist should be to question things highlight the other side etc. etc. you don't have to like an pm/politician etc.
So in other words always be critical even when it doesn't suit you.
The journalist you consistently do that are a very small minority with as result that politicians and party's say ''we don't like said journalist we won't come to his interviews/program/microphone etc.'' leading in a situation where someone doing his job mediocre as best is qualified as good. And good journalist become estranged and isolated.
