The world's five deadliest countries for journalists include three — India, Mexico and, for the first time, the United States — where journalists were killed in cold blood, even though those countries weren't at war or in conflict, the group said.

NBCNews
Just wanted to leave this here because i "strangely" couldn´t find anything about it on ATS.
To help people to decide who is the good and who is the not so good one nowadays.

So much hyperbole and BS in that article and yet you the OP bought into it without even reading the article and seeing the flaws in their conspiracy theory.


Shame on you.

One event is responsible, and it was 5 people. It's like saying a bus accident that kills a bunch of students makes the state where it occured the most deadliest state to go to school.

Right because this isnt a direct result of his war with the press and his support of a country that says its okay to execute any journalist who writes disparaging stories about the leadership of that country.

To be honest, fake news journalists should fear for their lives. The MSM creates so much fake BS, the environment they create could get deadly. : P

Who said it's okay to execute a journalist? Why do you lie?

Is it okay to drone innocent children?

Because Trump didn't acted as the police of the world and never ordered the CIA to drone the Saudi prince.

That's why crazy ol' lady is saying it's okay.

Nonsense. Those people were shot by someone pissed off about an article about him. The whole premise of this is garbage.

This is asinine,
rsf.org...

The United States joined the ranks of the world’s deadliest countries for the media this
year, with a total of six journalists killed. Four journalists were among the five employees
of the Capital Gazette, a local newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, who were killed on
28 June when a man walked in and opened fire with a shotgun. He had been harassing
the newspaper for six years on Twitter about a 2011 article that named him. It was the
deadliest attack on a media outlet in the US in modern history. Two other journalists, a
local TV anchor and cameraman, were killed by a falling tree while covering Subtropical
Storm Alberto’s extreme weather in North Carolina in May.


Meanwhile, countries who don't report like Russia, China, and Iran aren't even listed in the report. This is biased, agenda drive horsesh__ from a biased, agenda driven industry with a victimhood complex.

It gets worse, reporters who place themselves in the eye of a natural disaster and end up with trees falling on them are apparently considered "under attack" by this report...

It's the newest "threat' from the Right.
These poor MSM personalities (I won't call them reporters) are under heavy verbal attack.
We all know it's just one short step from calling fake news to mass shootings.
The Left overuses the persecution complex.
If true, the Right would be doing nothing but attacking various special interest groups 24/7.
Most have jobs so that we all know that ain't happening.
Maybe it's just James Woods has pushed them over the edge.
