The Post’s View Opinion A reporter’s arrest after he asked Tom Price a question sends a chilling message

May 12, 2017

The Washington Post, By Editorial Board May 11 at 7:49 PM
WE WILL be the first to acknowledge that reporters can be persistent — sometimes even obnoxious — in asking questions. But that, at least in the United States, has not generally been considered a crime. So it’s more than a little troubling that a reporter in West Virginia was handcuffed, placed under arrest and put in jail after trying to ask a question of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
