Journalists face increased scrutiny of how they cover the demonstrations that have bloomed across the country in protest of the police killing of a black man in Minneapolis last week.

In some cases, they have become part of the story, having been pepper-sprayed, tear-gassed, struck by bottles and bricks and even arrested while they cover the demonstrations.

On occasion, how they cover the story, the words and syntax of the telling, have attracted criticism.

Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher, a look at media coverage of the protests.
