Killing the Messenger
At least 68 journalists have died this year trying to tell people what's happening in a dangerous world, according to this new report. Hopefully the number won't climb any higher by the end of the year. This beats the previous record of 67, recorded a couple of years ago. Sad news, especially the single instance from the Philippines when 29 journalists were among a large group of people murdered, which happened in a part of the Philippines I didn't visit when there several years ago.
