Shenanigans by the Bay

For the second time in two weeks, a journalist with a Northern California MediaNews newspaper has had trouble with an authority figure.

Yesterday, a priest in Fairfield tried to grab a reporter's notebook after the reporter asked about the alleged expulsion of a parishoner from Mass for showing support for Barack Obama. The reporter, Ryan Chalk, works for the the Reporter in Vacaville.

Two weeks ago, Oakland Tribune photographer Jane Tyska had a run in with the Oakland Unified School District's police chief, who, amid a string of profanities, accused the photographer of elbowing his patrol car and then seized her camera without warrant.
