Being a journalist is hard, and in many places it’s harder because of the forces that act against those who want to let their communities know about what is really going on. The Reporters Without Borders organization issued a list of the “40 politicians, government officials, religious leaders, militias and criminal organisations that cannot stand the press, treat it as an enemy and directly attack journalists. They are powerful, dangerous, violent and above the law.”
It’s a top 40 of Evil, being evil here the opposite of truth. Without a free press some people will get away with anything. Those who are free to report have a bigger responsibility to defend journalism and its value in society. Remember, no one is too far away from these predators.
