JOURNALISTS MAY ENJOY REPORTING, BUT COULD LOSE THEIR LIVES & MIGHT END UP BEHIND BARS

There’s been a new high of journalists over the past year who’ve been jailed. CHINA remains top-of-the-list for the third year in a row with 50 locked up, according to The Committee to Protect Journalists. MYANMAR moved to second place because of a military coup. EGYPT, VIETNAM and BELARUS were the next three. This is the 6th consecutive year that The Committee has recorded at least 250 journalists, jailed for reporting. And of course there’s a whole pumpkin patch of Authoritarian Leaders terrorizing people. Some dictators can’t put up with a free press. Think of the United States & Canada on occasion. No names “s’il vous plaît”.
The United States has at least two of North America’s finest newspapers – Thre’s The New York Times & The Washington Post in the USA, and In Canada there’s The Globe and Mail which is getting better all the time.  All three of them are worth reading. <For your information – The New York Times printed this editorial called “A Record Number of Journalists Jailed”. Released on Sunday, December 19th it might be worth finding an issue. Good luck with that.>
