Watching the news today, I saw journalists getting beat up, tear-gassed, shot, and just in general terrorized. Sometimes they were being attacked by angry cops, and other times by angry looters.

What struck me more than anything, was the fact that anarchist looters and heavy handed cops, who ostensibly are at opposite ends of the spectrum, have one thing in common: They both have it in for journalists.

All I kept thinking, as I watched on the TV one scene after another of violence against journalists, was this: Disease hates disinfectant.
