Trump-ing Press Freedom?

Oh, we won’t see the end of that pun.

A case is going on now involving two award-winning documentary filmmakers being accused of filming one of Donald Trump’s properties without permission. The police confiscated their equipment for five days, and the filmmakers say that their video proves that they indeed have permission.

They were investigating events like the water being shut off by Trump contractors, which sounds like a classic example of journalism for the public interest.

This will be an interesting case to watch to measure the temperature of press freedom these days.
