Why Does The Press Hate Freedom Of Speech?

I was reading a story about G.W. Bush and President Hu of China meeting up this morning and was suprised to find out that when a protester who somehow gained access to a platform filled with photographers shouted out protests about the treatment of the Falun Gong in China she was physically silenced by a photographer. As the AP reports:
A photographer who was standing next to the protester tried momentarily to quiet her by putting his hand in front of her mouth.

Its bad enough when the press engages in self censorship. To physically restrain someone else from engaging in the constitutionally guaranteed right of free speech is unforgivable. That photographer should be fired.
