This panel will focus on the intersection of journalism and ethics in covering protests and protest narratives in the news, also addressing how adaptive technology is changing the ways that protests are covered.  When Cleveland announced its downtown curfew, there didn’t seem to be a press policy exception, raising questions about exactly who qualifies as press (with reference to recent litigation in Portland on this subject).
