When Journalists Break The Law

From the LVRJ:
Tesla said in a blog post this week that two staffers with the Reno Gazette Journal newspaper were found trespassing at the company's massive battery factory in Nevada on October 9.
According to Tesla, the two people had climbed through a fence displaying "private property" signs, and when confronted by security, attempted to drive away in a car.
"As the Tesla employee attempted to record the license plate number on the rear bumper, the driver put it in reverse and accelerated into the Tesla employee, knocking him over, causing him to sustain a blow to the left hip, an approximate 2" bleeding laceration to his right forearm, a 3" bleeding laceration to his upper arm, and scrapes on both palms," Tesla said this week.
The Storey County Sheriff's Office could not immediately provide arrest records from the incident. Tesla said one journalist was arrested.
The Reno Gazette Journal, in a news article, reported that one of its photographers was arrested on a charge of battery with a deadly weapon.
Besides journalists who think that they can input their opinions into their articles, provide a mostly liberal slant to the news, now some journalists believe they can break the law to justify a story, whatever it was.
We are in a an era of just horrible journalism.
