Does media coverage create unsafe spaces?

I saw this article from Washington Post about a group of politicians who want the University of Missouri to fire Melissa Click.

There's a lot to unpack in this article about government reach and First Amendment rights, but my favorite part of the article was this picture:

What do you think about the implication that this space is safer without media interaction? What are the lines that journalists shouldn't cross? Was the student protest one of them?

Her employment status is outside my purview, but a group acting on public property has no right to keep media away. Media attention is how that protest succeeded. They cannot have it both ways. I strongly respect the young man journalist who kept his calm and kept trying to report.

The young man said in an interview elsewhere, "Sometimes you have to put the camera down, but this wasn't one of those times." Couldn't agree more.
