So many of them were investigating the transnational money laundries, and then how many more were “neutralized” short of being murdered???

Also from the report:
The jump this year reflects 10 reporters killed in Afghanistan, as well as four journalists slain in a June attack at Maryland’s Capital Gazette newspaper.
Overall, some 53 journalists died on the job worldwide from Jan. 1 through Dec. 14 — including those killed inadvertently in combat or on other dangerous assignments — a 13 percent increase from 47 deaths in 2017, said CPJ, a U.S. nonprofit that promotes press freedom.

Last week, CPJ reported that a near-record number of journalists around the world are in prison this year because of their work, including two Reuters reporters in Myanmar.
Khashoggi, the reporters at the Capital Gazette, and the imprisoned Reuters’ journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were featured last week in Time Magazine’s Person of the Year issue, honoring “The Guardians and the War on Truth.”

National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not solved with more nationalism.
