Is All Press , Good Press For Students?

Despite the coalition government coming to a final agreement to raise the student fees, yesterday saw thousands of students fighting back in protest.
As a student myself , I 100% agree with the backlash that has been caused because of the decision.
What I don't agree with however is the bad name that some of the protesters have been giving students.
This should be an oppertunity for students to have their say and make themselves heard and instead due to the bad publicity from the press, students have been branded "Yobs" and "Violent".
Although some protesters had taken the protest too far, I dont think its fair that all students have been stereotyped under the same name.
The press should be supporting young people fighting back and taking a stand for something they believe in, after all this is our future were talking about.
One things for sure good press or bad press, students will continue to fight on.
