This time at the end of the year there are all sorts of reckoning about the passed year. One of the saddest of these is the statistics how many journalists were killed, jailed or exiled for their work.
I disagree with the statement in the title but the recurring photographer layoffs and many comments suggest this. This time a journalist expressed his quite similar opinion. I think he just challenged his fate because it is a dangerous thing to start prove your boss that everyone can be replaced with cheaper workforce – they might believe you and take it serious.
