Committee to Protect Journalists

It appears Eason Jordan was echoing what the Committee to Protect Journalists was saying: CPJ: 2004 Was Deadliest Year for Journos in a Decade By Joe Strupp in January 03, 2005 article in Editor & Publisher.
The number of journalists killed worldwide increased significantly during the past year, with 56 newspeople dying on the job in 2004, up from 38 in 2003, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which has tracked such statistics since 1992. Murder, not warfare, was the leading cause.(emphasis added)

The deaths ranged from the Philippines, where eight journalists were slain in a series of attacks, to Mexico, where drug-fueled violence claimed the lives of two journalists. In Iraq, where crossfire was the leading cause of death among journalists, at least nine of the 23 journalists killed were deliberately targeted, CPJ reported (emphasis added).

These are serious charges, "murder, deliberately killed"!
