2006 'Most Savage' Year

Hi there…

I just wanted to share this info…Nobody said a word about it…
Unfortunately the world still remains the same sh..hole where money, hipocrisy and power rules…nothing new…

The International Press Institute (IPI) says 2006 was the most brutal year for journalists across the world. 100!!!
“By far the most dangerous [place] is Iraq, where 46 journalists were killed last year,” Michael Kudlak, a press freedom adviser for the Vienna-based IPI, said.
……………………………………..
“Most of those were Iraqi journalists, who were targeted BECAUSE they worked for Western on U.S.-supported media organizations.”
……………………………………..almost 50% ….
The second most deadly country for journalists was the Philippines with 10 media staffers being killed. Seven journalists died in Mexico; five in Sri Lanka; four in Paki ETC ETc,……etc….and almost all the killings were carried out with impunity.

IPI says that apart from the killings, many countries continued to silence or censor journalists.

Any coments?…
