Killing The Messenger: The Deadly Cost of News
2015 Edward R. Murrow Award and 2015 National Headliner Award recipient.
In December 2006, the UN Security Council unanimously passed landmark Resolution 1738 which demanded greater safety for journalists in conflict areas and called for an end to impunity for their killers. Since the UN resolution was passed, over 300 news media workers have been killed, while more have been imprisoned or have simply disappeared while on the job. Countless others have been intimidated into self-censorship or have gone into exile. If no story is worth a life, then why is murder the number one cause of journalists’ deaths worldwide?
