    I think it would be useless to explain here why Press Freedom is mandatory. :)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Press_Freedom_Day

    Check : http://www.unesco.org/new/en/commun...-activities/world-press-freedom-day/homepage/
    Maybe Reporters without borders will make something though I didn't find anything nor I got any answer when I contacted them, or Amnesty (I heard some anons distributed some flyers last year).

    You can also create a 'Celebration' (and report it there : https://www.unesco-ci.org/foemap/reports/submit) to give some flyers (Remember that : https://whyweprotest.net/community/threads/how-to-flyer-effectively.34185/ ? ;)).

    If you have some ideas, share them ITT :
    (Do it quickly as it's in less than a week)

    I wonder what'd happen if, instead of being whores for multinationals, journalists were actually civil servants, paid whistleblowers...

    RT? Aljazeera?

    I'm not English so I can't give any name of newspaper like what you ask.
    But, in France there are several like reflets.info (they investigate for instance on the product sold by Amesys/Bull to Morocco or Libya). They generally talk about technology thing.
    For the public, there is mediapart which do a nice job. (so much that Sarkozy refuse to answer to their question ... :D).

    It must exist, you just need to know who they are. But sure, there are way more journalists who just copy-paste the Reuters news (and even not correctly sometimes).

    Are we talking about the companies or the journalists now?

    It's more or less linked. In some newspaper, one can say what he wants, when he wants if wants whereas sometimes he says what he has been told to say.

    Didn't realize that Al Jazeera was owned/operated by Qatar.

    Would you count the journalists who work for BBC in the same class as ones at RT, Al Jazeera?

    Or is that a 'multinational corporation' with it's own agenda distinct from public service?

    -not a brit

    A journalist who says what he has been told to say shouldn't be considered a journalist at all.

    I would like to make the point clear that this year there mostly likely won't be any raid this year over here, due to the lack of youknowwhos'.

    Washington is filled with such soulless stenographers, who repeat the platitudes on the rightness of murder mouthed to them by the banally evil.
