In Mexico journalists are tortured and murdered, in US they stay home and plagiarize

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.

Terwijl journalisten in Mexico en elders in de wereld gefolterd en vermoord worden- blijven ze, vooral in de US, en nog meer in het ‘Indian Country National News ‘, thuis en worden ze betaald om plagiaat te plegen.
Zij laten anderen het risico nemen, al het werk doen en opdraaien voor de onkosten terwijl ze zelden hun huis verlaten.
Zij kopiëren en plakken van het web en doen hun best hun lezers te bedriegen door hen te doen geloven dat zij ‘ter plaatse’ waren. Meermaals stelen ze ‘copyrighted’ foto’s.
In Mexico heeft Ruben Espinosa met zijn leven de tol moeten betalen voor waarheid en journalistiek.
Hij werd gefolterd voor hij gedood werd. De vrouwen in zijn huis werden verkracht en vermoord.
