Robbers appear to be targeting Bay Area photojournalists and TV crews. Why do journalists make such good targets?

They’re required to present both sides of the robbery.

Truth may be priceless, but items used to uncover it can be fenced for a lot of cash.

It is incredibly hard to find a piece of technology that can make video recordings.

Covering the Biennial of the International Society of Pickpockets, Cattle Rustlers, and Highwaymen at Moscone was just asking for it.

"Criming while on camera" is the new selfie.

Dumbass bros are finally over "F—- Her in the P——," so we shouldn't really complain.

Journalists are so beaten down by industry practices that at this point they can barely fight back.

This isn’t actually a trend. People in the media just like to talk about themselves.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
