1. Pentagon Threatens to Kill Independent Journalists

“The Pentagon has threatened to fire on the satellite uplink positions of independent journalists in Iraq," according to veteran BBC war correspondent, Kate Adie. In an interview with Irish radio, Ms. Adie said that [when] questioned about the consequences of such potentially fatal actions, a senior Pentagon officer had said: “Who cares…. They’ve been warned.”


2. Journalism Under Siege

In spite of the U.S. corporate media's biased pro-war coverage, outrageous examples of media manipulation and the actual targeting of journalists by the U.S. military in Iraq is mirrored regularly in the Occupied Territories of Palestine. In the West Bank city of Nablus on Saturday 19 April, another journalist was murdered by the Israeli military. Such incidents, as well as the limiting of access to the Territories for journalists who might report these atrocities, appears to be standard policy for the forces of repression and empire.

Given the inordinate number of journalists killed or wounded as well as missing in Iraq, the Pentagon's lack of concern, and identical circumstances in Israel and the Occupied Territories ,journalists both corporate and independent may have to actually advertise for justice. Of course, there are existing events and outlets [1], [2], [3] for supporting journalistic freedom that anyone can access.
