Are western journalists complicit
in the murder of others across the world – just because they don’t pay
That’s the question posed by a
stinging commentary posted on CNN International’s website. It comes from Rodney Pinder, director of the
International News Safety Institute.
Pinder says his phone “rang
off the hook” when two correspondents – one Canadian, one British – recently died
in Afghanistan. But a few weeks earlier, when 31 journalists
were massacred in the Philippines,
not a single reporter called him for comment. Pinder says such lack of attention makes the
killers bolder and helps governments shrug and look the other way.
