One of the dangers in journalism
THREE JOURNALISTS KILLED DURING JULY: AT LEAST 10 REPORTERS, EDITORS KILLED SO FAR IN 2010
Journalism, as we know, is the profession for those that contribute regularly to various forms of media. Whether the electronic or print media, the work of the journalist is to investigate and make a story out of the information he or she has gathered.
Journalists depend on the public for information when going about their jobs. However; in the course of their work to get the news across to the public, most journalists experience difficulties, tragedies, humiliation? and death.
According to the report detailing journalists killed since 1992, over 800 journalists have been killed around the world in cases where the committee to protect journalists have been able to confirm the motive.
It's more than a crime to kill a journalist who has no weapon than a pen to write his story, but the killing of journalists around the world never stops, because no serious action is taken against anyone when a journalist is killed.
Afghanistan and Iraq are responsible for the death of so many journalists but the killers are free, just as the killers of British journalist Rupert Hamer, are still free.
In every field of work, respect should prevail. One mustn't hate someone because of his profession. Without journalists, there will be no news. Journalists must be given proper protection and encouragement to make the profession interesting than a nightmare.
