Wes is always paying attention to the things many of us can’t see. It’s not ALL our fault though. It’s mainly the fault of our corporate media, for controlling the “news”. Brush past the fear and the fluff, and you should be able to find the real stuff! — YUR

Their Words, Our World, Colltalers

Another December, another end-of-the-year balance of the risks of news reporting around the globe. Spoiler’s alert: bringing the world to your doorstep has cost many reporters their freedom, at a price often paid with their own lives.
We’re not talking about those killed in one of the many ongoing wars. Or places where a free press is not a priority. Among the 20 deadliest countries of 2015, the Committee to Protect Journalists report names France, Brazil, and the U.S.
