I can post this journalism-themed parody of Lorde’s “Royals” by Breaking News associate editor Aaron Edwards precisely because he doesn’t have a beard. And because it’s funny.

In an unprecedented move, the French newspaper Libération ran an entire issue without photos today, placing them instead in the back spread so people can see the art that’s missing. Its reason? It was trying to draw attention to the plight of photojournalists worldwide—timing the issue around Paris Photo, the world’s largest photography fair. “It’s not a wake, we’re not burying the photographic art […] Instead we give photography the homage it deserves,” the paper explains. “Yet, no one can ignore the calamitous situation press photographers now find themselves in, especially war photographers who risk their lives while barely making a living.”
Your move, Chicago Sun-Times.

Report: Journalists going missing at unprecedented scale in Syria

  • 30 journalists have been missing for a year or longer, according to an Associated Press report based on information from the Committee to Protect Journalists. As the AP puts it: “The widespread seizure of journalists is unprecedented, and has been largely unreported by news organizations in the hope that keeping the kidnappings out of public view may help to negotiate the captives’ release.” source
