On Friday, the Newseum defended its decision to include the two cameramen, saying they were killed in a car that was clearly marked "TV." The Newseum said the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders and The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers all consider these men journalists killed in the line duty.

The Anti-Defamation League and other groups said the men were working for a propaganda outlet, not a legitimate news organization, and they pressed the Newseum to reverse course.
