Bravo! to Time magazine choosing a group of journalists as their "Person of the Year." A great reminder of what many news people go through to bring the truth out in the age of abuse, assassinations and Donald Trump.
The deserved honorees and horribly treated news people include
murdered newsman Jamal Khashoggi, who is the first deceased person to
win the honor, according to editors. Also the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, where five journalists were murdered; defiant international reporter Maria
Ressa; and two jailed Reuters reporters in Myanmar, Kyaw Soe Oo and Wa Lone, each sentenced to seven years "for
defying the ethnic divisions that rend that country (and) ... documenting the
deaths of 10 minority Rohingya Muslims."
