threat to journalism

Channel 12 news (the former employer of a friend of mine) in El Salvador recently received a wave of threats to its journalists. This is a big deal. It will effect not only journalism but also free speech in the country and the way journalists adhere to rules of ethics. You’ll also note this isn’t being covered by Western media (U.S./Europe). Column to follow next Wednesday.
