Right to Report: The importance of journalism.

Freedom of the Press

In a historical contest, criticizing the powerful, the government and religious institutions have been crucial to the advancement of culture and modern day ideas. The cliché of the journalist as watchdog remains true. Jomaggieurnalism is a trade where one should always pursue the truth and expose it to the masses. Granted, not all media organizations and their employees hold this altruistic view. Nonetheless, when it is done right, doesn’t the journalist deserve protection? Yes! According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 61 Journalists were killed in 2014 with motives confirmed (verified work related murder). It is a significant number, but only a part of all the body count. Not mentioned are disappearances, exiles and arrests, just to name a few of the other atrocities committed against Journalists. It is a miserable day when freedom of the press is silenced, we cannot afford to lose these voices that make communities and cultures stronger.
