If they aren’t satisfied with the news coverage they’re getting, we could send them one of our pro-jihad journalists — Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Bob Smietana, Kari Huus, any number of people. There are so many, we certainly could spare a few.
“Gunmen kill female TV presenter in Iraq,” from AAP, December 16 (thanks to Kenneth):
Gunmen have murdered a female TV presenter in northern Iraq, her station and police said, making her the sixth journalist to be killed in the country since October.
Nawras al-Nuaimi was shot on Sunday near her home in Mosul, Al-Mosuliyah TV said, and was the fifth journalist killed in the northern city in the same period.
Mostly Sunni Arab Mosul is one of the most dangerous cities in Iraq, with militants frequently carrying out attacks and reportedly extorting money from shopkeepers.
Iraq has come in for repeated criticism over shortcomings in media freedom, and ranks first in the Committee to Protect Journalists’ Impunity Index, which tracks unsolved murders of journalists.
Bloodshed in the country has reached a level unseen since 2008, when Iraq was emerging from a period of brutal sectarian conflict.
