New resource from CPJ on journalists killed in action

(Hat tip to Jon Slattery for this one)

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has produced a sobering page of interactive graphics illustrating the number of journalists killed in action across the world.

Journalists’ deaths are shown by country, by best and in a chart plotting the number of deaths from 1992 to 2009. According to the site, 32 journalists have been killed this year with a motive for their deaths confirmed.

Each year the CPJ produces a census on jailed journalists.

@press_freedom: a new Twitter service from Journalism.co.uk

In December 2008, Journalism.co.uk launched a new Dipity Timeline to track international media and we watched it attract a considerable amount of interest. The idea is to bring together international journalism news and comment, focusing on issues which affect journalists’ freedom of speech. We’ve played around with it a bit and re-launched the timeline (so please make sure you update your bookmarks).

  • Twitter: now, as well as following the timeline, you can now follow @press_freedom on Twitter to get all the same updates you would find through the timeline.

It would be interesting to see if we (media and journalism reporters) could collaboratively track a breaking press freedom news story some point in the future, as the journalists did with the floods in Washington.

Please contact Judith (@jtownend on Twitter) or Laura (@lauraoliver on Twitter) at Journalism.co.uk with ideas for how to improve the service, or with suggestions for your own involvement.
