WGBH News analyst Charlie Sennott told Boston Public Radio on Monday that the federal government's handling of protesters in Portland, Ore., has made the world view the U.S. as a place that is "limiting freedom of expression." "Our country, the United States of America, now suddenly looks on television like we are some autocratic government in the developing world where you have federal troops moving in against peaceful protesters," he said.

Charlie Sennott is a WGBH News Analyst and executive director ofThe GroundTruth Project.
