    and so here we have a mechanism by which authority can suppress freedom of the Press. 

    Who makes these rules?

    I’d say this is a good chink in the armor to put the NYPD on defense about policy, as they should be.

    Any way for the blogs that host the work of citizen journalists like myself to deputize us as correspondents-in-the-field? That would be awesomesauceome! “Hands off, officer, I’m with . . . the blogosphere!”

    I had an NYPD dismiss me as “another guy from the NY Times, here so he can get more photographs and bring more protesters down here” last Tuesday morning, in the aftermath of the destruction of Liberty Square. I sassed back, telling him that an average NY Times reader would just stay home: that I represented the bloggers, and that we do indeed plan on showing up . . . en masse. Jerk.
