Treating journalists like terrorists
A (St. Petersurg, FL) Times Editorial
Published July 25, 2004

As the political convention season gets under way journalists from around the world are expected to converge on Boston and New York City. That is, unless they are detained at the airport by immigration officials, body searched, held in shackles and deported.

Within the last 18 months, at least 18 foreign journalists have been seized and expelled from American airports. Foreign journalists apparently need a special press visa to enter the United States, a requirement that has existed in law since 1952, but has just recently been enforced.

Many journalists from friendly, non-visa nations who have repeatedly entered the country in the past are unaware of this extra paperwork. For those traveling into the Los Angeles International Airport in particular, the result of this honest error has been treatment more akin to terror suspects.

5. Correction: The Busheviks don't like jouranlists from FREE NATIONS
that have FREE PRESSES.

Does that help explain why they don't hate Imperial Amerikan journalists as much as they do Free World journalists?
