I wrote about this on the Frontline blog, but it's worth a crosspost here. Two freelance journalists, Amanda Lindhout and Nigel Brennan, were kidnapped in Somalia six months ago today. There's no mention of their plight in the mainstream media today – at least not yet. It's a given that it's tough being a journalist and getting kidnapped. Being a freelance, with no big media outlet out there batting for you, must be a lot tougher. Head over to Frontline to read the whole story or browse the timeline above.
P.S. that's a new look Frontline Club website I've been working on. Would love to hear any thoughts/suggestions. I'll post more on that as and when I get make the time.
