The French Ban Citizen Journalists From Reporting Violence

In a move that can only be described as, well, French, the French Constitutional Council passed a law that has made the filming or broadcasting of reports of violence by citizen journalists a criminal offence.

The council’s decision comes exactly 16 years after amateur videographer George Holliday filmed police officers beating Rodney King on March 3, 1991.

The council has also proposed a system of certification for web sites and other online content publication mediums, that would allow them to be identified as ‘government-approved sources of information’ if they conform to certain regulations. Reporters Without Borders, an organization that campaigns for free press has warned this system could lead to excessive self censorship.
