Journalists Facing Biggest Threats in Recent Times, Advocacy Group Says

by: Rick Gladstone | New York Times

The ascendance of militant extremists and criminal gangs who abduct and kill reporters, combined with rising government repression in the cause of counterterrorism, has created the biggest threat to journalism in recent times, a press advocacy group said in an annual report on Monday.
