Online Journalists Jailed More Than Print Journalists


Posted December 8, 2008 - By r_pad

The battle between online journalists and print journalists has been raging for years. This secret war is akin to Autobots vs. Decepticons, The Avengers vs. The Masters of Evil, Thundercats vs. mutants, Science Ninja Team Gatchaman vs. Galactor, etc. After more than a decade of brutal fighting, online journalists can proclaim victory! We're #1!!! According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, online journos have overtaken print journos as the most frequently jailed reporter. The groups study revealed that:

"Reflecting the rising influence of online reporting and commentary, more Internet journalists are jailed worldwide today than journalists working in any other medium. In its annual census of imprisoned journalists, released today, the Committee to Protect Journalists found that 45 percent of all media workers jailed worldwide are bloggers, Web-based reporters, or online editors. Online journalists represent the largest professional category for the first time in CPJ's prison census."

So take that print journos! We're jailed more than you guys are! Oh wait...that's not necessarily a good thing. Crap.
