Via the wires, we hear today that there were 59 journalists killed in the first six months of 2010, up from 53 in the same period of 2009, all this from the publishers, the Press Emblem Campaign. Top region for deaths was Latin America, weighing in with a full 24 of those killings. Here's the regional breakdown:
Top was Mexico, second that "now it's all back to normal, move along now, nothing to see here" bastion of wonderfullness called Honduras, third was Colombia, fourth Venezuela.
You probably only heard about the deaths in Venezuela.
