Threats to Media Freedom 10 Years After The Assassination of Tara Singh Hayer

17 Nov

Local bloggers should attend this if they can.  Kim Bolan describes the event.

I am on a panel on Tuesday night at Langara College that I helped organize – just talking about some of the on-going threats that reporters get when they try to expose extremism. The event is sponsored by The Vancouver Sun, Langara’s Journalism Department and Canadian Journalists for Free Expression.

It is open to the public, though seating is limited, so arrive a few minutes early.

This is one of the big issues with journalism being practiced outside of traditional institutions.  Here is a chance to learn more about how the mainstream media handles reporter safety when investigating really bad people.
