Reporter’s Notebook: Media and the fate of a soldier

Chants of “the media are terrorists” do not bode well for a reporter in the midst of angry protesters – protesters who believe that media, in a concerted effort with “extreme-leftist” judges, unjustly condemned Elor Azaria for the murder of an immobilized Palestinian who sought to attack IDF soldiers.

While violence at the protest was not extensive, some protesters – mostly right-wing members of the La Familia soccer club – did gang up on journalists, pushing, shoving and at one time grabbing this reporter’s phone for photographing the incidents. At other times, protesters clashed with police and broke through a police barricade, seeking to block the road.
