The Godfather Part 2.0

Reporters Without Borders calls organized crime the single biggest threat to media freedom. No joke. You probably don’t think about this one when you’re scrambling to make deadlines at your humble little church publication, eh?

Their “Muscling in on the Media” report details the influence of mafia, cartels, and guerrilla movements in journalism on the global stage, even to the point of murdering journalists and their families. It’s worth a read. And a prayer.
