Wars and disputed elections: The most dangerous stories for journalists


via Reporters Sans Frontières – Wars and disputed elections: The most dangerous stories for journalists.

These statistics are disheartening.

In 2009

76 journalists killed (60 in 2008)
33 journalists kidnapped
573 journalists arrested
1456 physically assaulted
570 media censored
157 journalists fled their countries
1 blogger died in prison
151 bloggers and cyber-dissidents arrested
61 physically assaulted
60 countries affected by online censorship

One would think that in an era of ubiquitous information, we’d be beyond this. What implications will this have once the new socialist regime takes hold here in the United States? What will you do to stop this kind of persecution dead in its tracks before it has a chance to take root?
