For the fifth straight year, Iraq was the deadliest country in the world for the press. Its 31 victims account for nearly half of the 2007 toll. Most of the victims were targeted and murdered, such as Washington Post reporter Salih Saif Aldin, who died in Baghdad from a single gunshot wound to the head. In all, 24 deaths in Iraq were murders and seven occurred in combat-related crossfire.


if you can't force them to report what it is you want to be perceived as "the truth," then you silence them through murder.

Does anyone, besides the complacent "sheeple," really believe, hook, line and sinker, what the MSM reports as the "real story" anymore.

Perhaps the numbers here on ATS are lower, but what about in the "real world?"

Control the media, and you control the masses.
