Sarah McCammon covers abortion rights and religion for NPR, so when duty calls, she has to be prepared for the worst:
My bulletproof vest that I may need to be a journalist in America arrived and they sent me a Small and I had to adjust it to make it a little smaller and for a moment I was happy that I was too small for my bulletproof vest that I need to do journalism in America.

Where, exactly, does Sarah do her journalisming?
You do not need a bulletproof vest to be a journalist in America, this is really stealing valor from people who do…. https://t.co/ynML3SvhcJ

while journalists from @npr like to grandstand about their bulletproof vests on twitter, when the riots get crazy and the sunsets the mainstream media goes home and independent reporters stay out and actually risk their safety to cover civil unrest in this country https://t.co/6ZEoLFeXh9

I sincerely would like to know: Where in America do you need a vest to be a journalist?
I grew up in Venezuela were both my parents were journalists, so I know a little about threats to journos and honestly this tweet just seems like you’re looking for attention. https://t.co/wWtsMYv19P
