Well I noticed today that a person of BBC was violently attacked by someone in the US, obviously there exist heavy imagery from this. So I am wondering: why is this not followed up on by the authorities to protect the media? And why is there not being made an example of such offenders? Since everyone knows the media are the guardians of the democracy, an attack on media is an attack on democracy.
History has shown that only after media got "stronger" people could protect themselves against monarchies by reporting what happens in the government.
Is this because there's still the attitude of "wild west" in the USA where people have to stand up for themselves? Or do the US not feel media is important to protect democracy?
