Law and ethics discussion on videotaping

On the Media, the program about media topics broadcast by New York public radio WNYC, tackled a couple of interesting topics related to news videographers in its June 17th pr0gram.  With so many confrontations between news photographers and the police, NPPA general counsel Mickey Osterreicher weighed in on the rights and responsibilities of photographers (http://www.onthemedia.org/2012/jun/15/perils-filming-police/).  Then photojournalist Lauren Pond, talked about her experience shooting a documentary about a Pentacostal minister who was bitten by a rattlesnake and died.  She continued shooting the scene and talks about the ethics of capturing the footage or coming to his aid (http://www.onthemedia.org/2012/jun/15/when-put-camera-down/).  You can click on the links to access the podcast of each interview.
