I've been physically attacked, verbally abused, shot at, bombed and arrested in my 25 years as a TV reporter. They're occupational hazards. But being accused of assisting terrorists is not.
I have no idea what Ms. Torton has, or has not, done.
However, I do think that assisting terrorists could be an occupational hazard.
Of course it is.
Terrorist groups employ journalists. As spies, Soviet Russia did. So, too, does China. Ulrike Meinhof slipped from journalism into terrorism.
Israel considers Al-Quds Educational Radio and Al-Aqsa TV as terrorist organizations disguised as media outlets.
As a journalist, Ms. Torton should be more exact in her reportimng.
