According to an AP report, 70 journalists died on the job in 2013. The AP added that “...almost half of them [were] in Syria.” Tiffany Stecker with ClimateWire said, “For 1st time in a decade, no journalists killed in Mex.” Eric Deggans at NPR said of the whole thing “Dislike.”

In some sad news, Al-Jazeera journalists arrested were in Cairo. Tomi Oladipo at the BBC tweeted: “Al Jazeera's @PeterGreste arrested in Cairo. @abdallahelshamy is still in detention since August.” Jonny Hallam there added they were arrested “for illegal meeting with MB.” Michael Rusch from BuzzFeed added: “The Egyptian Interior Ministry said the journalists had held illegal meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Al Jazeera added they’re asking Egypt to release the journalists. Gabriel Elizondo there said, “Al Jazeera demands Egypt release our journalists. #FreeAJStaff” Andy Carvin at NPR called the whole thing, “Madness. Sheer madness.”

In other media news, Christine Haughney at the New York Times reports that Time Inc. Is Preparing to Head Out on Its Own.
