Journalists Time's POY

Postby Shorty » Mon Oct 08, 2018 11:15 am

Parts of Europe are still a dangerous place for journalists.

Popular Bulgarian Journalist Victoria Marinova Raped And Beaten To Death
https://www.yahoo.com/news/popular-bulg ... 22324.html

"Marinova is the fourth high-profile journalist to be killed in Europe since the beginning of 2017. Her death follows the alleged slaying of a Washington Post journalist in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul...“Viktoria’s death, the brutal manner in which she was killed, is an execution. It was meant to serve as an example, something like a warning,” Asen Yordanov, owner of news website Bivol.bg, told AFP...

In the first episode, she interviewed two investigative reporters who were recently arrested while looking into corruption involving the misuse of EU funds. The two journalists — Attila Biro of the Romanian Rise Project, and Dimitar Stoyanov, a reporter for Bivol.bg — had uncovered “large-scale and wide-spread corruption” in EU-funded projects in Bulgaria worth hundreds of millions of Bulgarian leva, the European Council said.

Ricardo Gutiérrez, head of the European Federation of Journalists, called for enhanced protections for journalists across Europe. “This is the fourth brutal murder of a journalist in a Member State of the European Union since 2017,” Gutiérrez said in a statement. “The killers and their sponsors obviously aim to intimidate the entire profession.

Kim Wall, a Swedish journalist, was decapitated in August 2017 while conducting an interview on a submarine owned by inventor Peter Madsen, who was later convicted of the crime. Two months later, Maltese anti-corruption journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia was killed by a car bomb. In February 2018, Slovakian journalist Jan Kuciak and his fiancée were shot dead in their home. Kuciak had been investigating alleged political corruption at the time."

a human interest and cultural affairs reporter? so u think someone had such a strong difference of opinion on a recent museum exhibit or a report that a cat and a crow are friends?


manchmal, zu klug ist zu dumm . . .

several shots to one person, one to the other, police say it is a homicide investigation . . . which is only fair -- one has to have some pretty bad fine motor control to have a gun/s to off like that during cleaning . . . there was one time, i think it was in the paper, or something someone told me:

cops: so u hit your wife five times with a hammer . . . cleaning it and it went off?
suspect: whaaaat‽
