While journalists are being tortured and murdered in Mexico and around the world, in the US, particularly in Indian country national news, the common practice is to hire paid stay-at-home plagiarizers. They let others take the risks, do the work and pay the costs, while collecting a paycheck and rarely leaving their homes.
They copy and paste from the web, stealing others work for profit, while deceiving their readers into believing that they are actually out covering the news. They often add stolen copyrighted photos.
In Mexico, Ruben Espinosa paid for truth and journalism with his life. Ruben was tortured before they assassinated him in Mexico City. The women in the house were raped and murdered.
In memory of the high standard that Ruben gave us.
