马耳他女记者汽车爆炸丧生 纽约时报:针对记者的人身安全威胁成新常态

10月16日下午,马耳他女记者Daphne Caruana Galizia遭遇汽车炸弹袭击身亡,引起国际新闻界的震动,以及对记者处境及新闻自由现状的讨论与关注。

Galizia是马耳他有名的调查记者,长期关注并报道揭露马国官员的腐败行为,包括指控马国时任总理约瑟夫·穆斯卡特与其妻子开设离岸公司。不久前,Galizia还入选了美国政治新闻网站Politico的“2017年影响欧洲的28人”

《纽约时报》17日社论列举从中东到东南亚的多国案例指出,对于全球记者而言,如关押、暗杀、判罪等针对记者的攻击与人身安全威胁正成为一种新常态(new normal)。“无国界记者”组织统计,2017年迄今为止,全世界共有42名职业记者、四名公民记者、八名协助报道的人被杀害。此外,还有367名新闻相关从业人员被监禁。
