Murders of journalists in Central America remain unsolved

In Guatemala and Honduras, being a journalist can be a dangerous profession, according to a new study from the Committee to Protect Journalists. The organization investigates the deaths of journalists around the world, and found that in these two countries many murders go unsolved. Often the person who killed the journalists is brought to justice, but according to Sara Rafsky, who wrote the report, these killers are hit men acting on behalf of a mastermind, who goes free. Sara Rafsky joins us to discuss the report.
