Turkey ‘ranks first in journalist arrests’
While attention is generally focused on journalists arrested in Egypt, Al Jazeera reports that it’s Turkey which leads the way.
The report states that 63 journalists remain behind bars in Turkey according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
For context in 2013 Turkey had 26 journalists imprisoned, though now I question the accuracy of that number.
These new numbers are startling when compared to other countries infamous for jailing journalists such as China (30), Eritrea (26), Iran (20), and Syria (19). (All numbers from 2013).
This is my favorite thing ever.
CNN wants to know why media “too often feel compelled to stage debates” on climate change, considering the overwhelming scientific consensus that it does exist.
Funny thing, last month CNN’s Crossfire hosted a debate on climate change, featuring the Heritage Foundation as the climate change skeptic.
A headline from the sports section of our Alma Matter the MCLA Beacon.
Now, I (Mary) am of the opinion that this is a poor headline, which has sparked a debate on my friend’s Facebook on if headlines need to give you all the adequate information, or if it should be part of the entire article-package, so to speak.
What do you all think? Should the headline have told you what women, and how they’re struggling? Or is this all enough to tell you what is happening?
Have you got the news instincts of a top Mail executive?
The best part is the scoring.
