Murder is the leading cause of work related death for journalists as censoring increases world wide. Since 2006 300 plus journalists have been killed while reporting.
In addition to those who have been killed, dozens have been attacked, kidnapped, or forced into exile in connection with their coverage of crime and corruption.
Journalists reporting from Mexico, Russia and Iraq tell their own stories of kidnapping, intimidation, and beatings. They’ve experienced the loss of colleagues in the field and have been close to death themselves. Their stories are heartfelt, captivating, engaging and at moments – unbelievable.
Join us for a compelling look at what getting the news sometimes entails.
