The year 2018 has been quite a dangerous one, particularly for all those who bring to us the news. As per the Committee to Protect Journalists, during this year, 129 journalists were killed. For the first time ever in history, the United States has got listed as one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists to carry out their activities, with regard to their job profiles. For the last two years, The President of the United States has been calling the media industry an enemy to mankind. Quite a number of Donald Trump’s followers have bought into his statement, which is thought of as nothing but false allegation against the media. He alleged that newsrooms have been assaulted by gunmen.
On a number of occasions, bomb threats have been made against different TV stations. The Government of Nicaragua has put severe restrictions on the independent press of the nation. The Washington Post’s Jamal Khashoggi had got strangled and was cut to pieces through a saw, by the operatives of Saudi Arabia. The President of America, Donald Trump had just shrugged his shoulders and simply moved on with his life. He did not pay much attention to this incident. There is a tremendous kind of hate and distrust, which have been showered on all those, who worked in order to throw light on the dark secrets of the governments. The secrets are all those, which the governments would not like to make them known and happen to be the wet dream of a budding fascist.
Moreover, now a number of newspapers of America have suffered a cyber-attack. A cyber-attack, which seems to have originated from out of the United States had caused disruptions linked with printing and delivery at different newspapers all over the country on Saturday, which include the Los Angeles Times. The attack had led to delays in distribution during the Saturday edition of The Times, the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chicago Tribune, and Baltimore Sun along with several other major publications, which operate on a platform for shared production. One of the sources said that the main intention behind the cyber-attack was to disable the infrastructure, especially the servers and not necessarily to steal information.
