What on earth are the British thinking these days, aiming their guns at their messengers?

The Brits harassed five top financial journalists who appeared at a government hearing in London to defend themselves against accusations their reporting caused panic and helped escalate the financial crisis in the U.K.

Reported a story on CBC.ca: “An independent committee comprising members of the British parliament have been investigating the U.K.’s banking crisis and questioning different players in the industry. Journalists from the BBC, the Financial Times, the Daily Mail, Sky News and the Guardian said that even if they had held back their stories about failing banks, the problems at the institutions would have existed.”

A British photography journal recently reported that new anti-terrorism laws will make it possible for police to imprison journalists who take pictures of them.
