Abstract

Since they began, journalists covering the recent #BlackLivesMatter protests in the US have been subject to violence and intimidation. Paul Reilly, Anastasia Veneti, and Darren Lilleker write that while violence against journalists is nothing new, President Trump’s attacks on journalists and the press have likely motivated many of these attacks, at a time when political leaders should be expressing their support for First Amendment rights.
