Protests continue on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia, following the resignations of the school's president and chancellor over their handling of racial issues at the school.

The conversation took a different turn on Tuesday, when a video (below) of a group of student protesters and staffers at the University of Missouri attempted to physically force a student photojournalist away from the on-campus protest area.

NPR’s David Folkenflik and journalist Terrell Starr join Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson to discuss why some students were so hostile to the media and whether the photojournalist had the right to be there.
