World Press Freedom Day

Yes, I am a day late. But it is worth mentioning that yesterday was World Press Freedom Day, at least according to Google. What is this about? Well - it is about the dangerous work that journalists (traditional and bloggers) do to get information from various parts of the world.

There are parts of the world where journalists are not safe. Violent crimes are committed, the press is not protected, and furthermore the criminals are not punished.

World Press Freedom Day brings awareness to this cause.

If you would like to read more about World Press Day on Google's blog then follow the link below.

I can be a bit of a news junkie, and today I am thinking of those who put their lives in danger to bring the news to a 53 inch flat screen in my living room.
