Assaulting reporters must be condemned

No matter what the stance is, media should not exploit details purposefully to deviate the whole thing from the most important focus: Radical protesters brutally attacked Fu.

Any attempt, especially by some biased Westerners, to defend them is nothing short of being an accomplice in the violence.
