How was this even a question worthy of consideration? Journos have been doing this sorta thing for decades, did they think a press pass made them aristocratic or something?! If a journo can do something then we can all do it

There are reasonable exceptions to any rule, the hard part is figuring out when those exceptions are legit and when they are nothing but excuses to consolidate power.

Not sure what the context is. Are you implying that they have the right to not be recorded when spouting off about all of the illegal stuff they're doing?

How is it that police can record you with impunity, but then expect us to not be able to record them? Fuck that!
