Seven journalists killed this year in Honduras

The recent killing of American photojournalist, James Foley, was a shock to many Americans, but imagine if journalists inside America, not covering war zones, were disappeared or killed on a regular basis for simply doing their jobs. In Honduras, seven journalists have been killed so far in 2014. We’ll talk with Laura Raymond, Advocacy Program Manager for International Human Rights at the Center for Constitutional Rights. She’ll tell us how the impunity to murder journalists and activists in Honduras is connected to U.S. policy and issues like the child migrant crisis.
