World’s Most Dangerous Job: Russian Reporter!

ReporterIn an admittedly desperate attempt to get a Russian visit, Our spotlight falls on Russia’s reporters this week.  Right now in Russia, reporters are biting the dust left and right in some serious trouble.  In fact, Russia has been declared the second most dangerous country in the world for reporters.

It may come as no surprise  sound shocking, but in the past ten years, 88 reporters have been murdered mysteriously died.  The freaky thing is that they all died before they could finish writing a real big story about the not so friendly Russian government.  Strange.

So our critical question today is are the rights of the people of Russia disappearing?  Is freedom of speech being destroyed?

Here’s what we think:
