Journalists criticize media access restrictions in New Orleans

NBC's Brian Williams, who had a run-in this week with a police sergeant, says: "I don't like being told when I can and cannot walk on the streets and take pictures." Washington Post reporter Timothy Dwyer says he heard an officer telling a camera crew allowed on a boat in a flooded area near downtown New Orleans: "If we catch you photographing one body, we're going to bring you back in and throw you off the boat."
