Umbrellas defending from tear gas. Songs of freedom echoing in rainstorms. Tent cities springing up.  Smartphone lights dancing in the air. These are the sights and sounds of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy protests that have gripped this city for more than half a month. Media coverage has come fast and furious but how fair and how well have the protests been covered? What questions still must be asked?
