"No doubt about it, journalists are targets now,"

I wonder how far back the CPJ stats for journalist deaths go -- 1993? Just anecdotally, I am re-reading Dispatches, the penultimate chapter of which is a long catalogue of journalists killed or maimed during the Vietnam War, most notably Sean Flynn and Dana Stone who are believed to have been killed by the Khmer Rouge. Journalists have always been targets.

I went to J school, still considering working in the field... The current climate simultaneously fascinates and scares the shit out of me. Thanks for the post.
