Associated Press NEW YORK — Journalists at the overnight raid of Occupy Wall Street's New York encampment were kept at a distance from covering it Tuesday, and several were arrested, handcuffed and hauled onto police buses along with hundreds of protesters. At least half a dozen journalists were among those arrested in and around Zuccotti Park and at other protest sites in downtown Manhattan, according to demonstrators and other journalists who photographed and filmed their peers being taken into custody.

The Climactic Minutes of Last Night's Occupy Raid
By about 4 a.m. today, New York City police had pushed the media out of Zuccotti Park and were preparing to evict the few dozen protesters who remained. Yet there I was, standing in the park amid a gaggle of high-ranking officers, quietly watching the whole thing unfold. "You gonna occupy awhile?" one officer cracked to another. "Yeah," the other guy smiled. I stood next to them against a short granite wall, trying to avoid notice.

Video: Reporter for The Local Is Arrested During Occupy Wall Street Clearing The police arrested some 200 people, including this reporter, in and around the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Lower Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park early Tuesday. While some officers, many in riot gear, moved into the park, others blocked access to the park within a one- to two-block radius, also closing subway stations in the area as well as access to the Brooklyn Bridge. At around 1:45 a.m., finding all routes to the park blocked, this reporter filmed scuffles between the police and a crowd of more than 100 demonstrators near the intersection of Broadway and Cortlandt Street, about one block north of Zuccotti Park. As shown in the video above, protesters chanted “Shame!” and “This is a peaceful protest!” while occasionally jostling with police.

Occupy Wall Street Protesters Evicted, Grapple With Future of Movement Occupy Wall Street activists grappled with the future of their movement after a police raid and a day of legal drama ended their hold on a Manhattan park that had become the symbolic center of the world-wide protest. Police in a predawn sweep cleared out a tent city the protesters had erected in the downtown park, marking a dramatic turn in what has become a vexing saga for New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Later in the day, a judge backed up the mayor's move, ruling in favor of the park's owner, Brookfield Office Properties Inc., that it could enforce rules against camping in the park. The forced evacuation came as other cities around the world have started to take similar steps, including Toronto, London and Oakland, Calif. It wasn't clear whether the eviction in New York will end the protest or push it into a new phase that could be harder for police to control.

Emmanuel Dunand/AFP/Getty Images NEW YORK - In a surprise overnight move, police here on early Tuesday cleared out Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan where Occupy Wall Street protesters had been camped out for about two months. The raid happened as journalists trying to cover the event were kept at a distance and at times were treated violently, according to the Huffington Post. Most reporters were barred from getting too close to the action, it said. Using the Twitter hashtag "#mediablackout," some journalists tweeted that that police had blocked them from seeing what was happening or had acted violently, according to the Huffington Post.

Occupy Wall Street 'Media Blackout': Journalists Arrested, Roughed Up, Blocked From Covering Clearing Occupy Wall Street 'Media Blackout': Journalists Arrested, Roughed Up, Blocked From Covering Clearing UPDATE: The Society Of Professional Journalists has condemned the arrests of reporters carried out by the New York Police Department during their raid of the Occupy Wall Street encampment. In a statement on Tuesday, the group noted that at least six journalists had been arrested, and called "for all charges against these journalists to be dropped and for greater care by police to avoid arresting or otherwise obstructing journalists who are simply and clearly doing their jobs." It also stressed that "the journalists were either wearing press credentials or explained to police that they were reporters covering the protests," and argued, "they were clearly exercising the constitutional right of a free press...it is clear now that many journalists have been erroneously arrested without cause." The New York Press club also condemned the Bloomberg administration for its apparent efforts to block journalists from witnessing the raid.
Press Suppression at Occupy Wall Street Raid · bendoernberg
The NYPD Didn't Want You To See Occupy Wall Street Get Evicted The NYPD Didn't Want You To See Occupy Wall Street Get Evicted A police officer carries trash through Zuccotti Park (AP) During our coverage of the eviction of the Occupy Wall Street protesters early this morning, a NPR reporter, a New York Times reporter, and a city councilmember were arrested. Airspace in Lower Manhattan was closed to CBS and NBC news choppers by the NYPD, a New York Post reporter was allegedly put in a "choke hold" by the police, a NBC reporter's press pass was confiscated and a large group of reporters and protesters were hit with pepper spray. According to the eviction notice, the park was merely "cleaned and restored for its intended use." If this is the case, why were so few people permitted to view it?
Occupy Crackdown Targets Journalists « Groundswell For the past two months I have been tracking journalist arrests at Occupy protests around the country. Today, Nov. 15, was the worst day yet in terms of police suppression of the press. It all began in the middle of the night, when police moved in at 1 a.m. to forcibly evacuate Zuccotti Park, the original Occupy Wall Street encampment.

Associated Press Staff Scolded for Tweeting Too Quickly About OWS Arrests A high importance e-mail went out to Associated Press employees early Wednesday morning to remind them of Twitter rules in the wake of staff arrests at yesterday's local protests. "In relation to AP staff being taken into custody at the Occupy Wall Street story, we’ve had a breakdown in staff sticking to policies around social media and everyone needs to get with their folks now to tell them to knock it off," went one version of the e-mail sent from on high, as obtained by Daily Intel. "We have had staff tweet – BEFORE THE MATERIAL WAS ON THE WIRE – that staff were arrested."
