CBS 5 cameraman robbed after live shot in Oakland

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Another attack on a working member of the media in Oakland. This time it’s a CBS 5 cameraman, punched in the face and robbed of his camera by several young assailants after a live-shot outside Oakland Technical High School at noon today. The reporter with him was unharmed, the Oakland Tribune says. Neither cameraman nor reporter has been identified, which is how local TV stations, nervous about the string of (so far) eight such incidents since April, seem to prefer it.
