A journalist who works for the corporate media reported an attempt to intimidate him at Custom House Station to the indymedia dispatch phones:

At 10.30, he was inside Custom house station, taking notes and holding a camera. The station manager came to him and told him not to take notes, and that he could not take pictures either.
He complained as being a registered journo, at which point he was threatened with calling the police if he didn't leave.
After complaining and threatening the manager with publishing a damming article about DLR, the manager agreed to let him write notes, but not take pics.
