Camerawoman Fired for Tripping Refugees Fleeing Police
The media is supposed to report the news, not become it.
A Hungarian camerawoman has been relieved of her job after she tripped a refugee carrying his child while on the run from police after escaping a camp on the Hungarian-Serbian border earlier this week.
Today, a N1TV colleague behaved unacceptably at the Roeszke reception center. The cameraman’s employment was terminated with immediate effect.”
The trip caused some pundits to claim the broadcaster was biased.
Her actions also drew the wraith of social media:
