POLICE PRETENDERS GIVE JOURNALISTS A BAD NAME
The Ontario Superior Court decides it’s okay for police to pretend to be and pose as a news reporter, so now if you think you’re talking to a journalist you may find out you’re talking to a cop. However, if a journalist pretended to be a cop I’m pretty sure that wouldn’t be okay.
Media groups may appeal Ontario court decision, arguing such police tactics will cause a chill in press freedom.
