Shot for news?

Reporters Without Borders, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting freedom of the press around the world, has posted a provocative new video to their YouTube channel as part of a campaign to raise public awareness around the importance of press freedom.

The video, which is meant to be shocking, shows a man get shot while reaching for a newspaper on a city street. According to Reporters Without Borders, 850 journalists have lost their lives in the last 15 years over seeking and providing access to information.

Take a look at the video, and visit www.rsf.org for more information.
