The Committee to Protect Journalists has compiled their annual Top Ten list, representing "the full range of current threats to press freedom"
"In all of these places, reporting the news is an act of courage and conviction," said CPJ Executive Director Ann Cooper. "Journalism is essential in helping all of us understand the events that shape our lives, and our need and desire for information cannot be eliminated by violence and repression."Kind of shocking to see a 'respected' 'superpower' make the list. Overuse of "radar" quotes I know. I meant Russia when I said that, as if China isn't a respected superpower? I worry me sometimes, especially when I think aloud and choose not to censor myself.
I will retreat to my corner now.
