Do You Want To Be a Journalist?

Yaay! Seventy journalists (70 media practitioners) killed in 2014, this report from the Committee to Protect Journalists caught me in my waking hours this morning leading to a rude awakening.

On average two journalists are murdered every week with Africa and the Middle East being the worst and most despicable serial-killer regions. The CPJ report notes that Africa (the Motherland) has steadily lost its pedestal from the least murderous nation of journalists, and the trend of job-related killings in Africa, especially East Africa, is disgusting, shocking, unacceptable.

Follow the link below for the full CPJ report and judge for yourself.

God Bless Journalists!
