Arrested Reporters


The Awl assembles a list of the 26 reporters arrested (so far) covering Occupy Wall Street stories and reveals what they do and who they are.

“Only seven of the 25 arrested are full-time employed traditional news-gathering employees. A number were student reporters; a few were interns; a larger number were freelancers. Some work for traditional “objective” news organizations; others work for “non-objective” news organizations, like Alternet and Indypendent Reader.”
