YouTube channel honours fallen journalists

Google launched a channel dedicated to works & lives of those who died while reporting news.



San Francisco: Google today launched a
YouTube channel honouring fallen journalists and enhanced its
online news pages.

Google teamed with the Newseum based in Washington, DC
on a Journalists Memorial channel dedicated to the works and
lives of those around the world who have died while reporting
news.

"The risks and sacrifices that many have made in order
to provide us with accurate information are remarkable," Steve
Grove of YouTube News and Politics said in a blog post.

"Their stories are incredible: heading into a street
battle with no weapon other than your camera; talking about
politics over the radio, only to be beaten to death with iron
bars by a group of thugs on the way to work."

The channel at youtube.com/journalistsmemorial was
described as a digital version of the annual Newseum
Journalist Memorial devoted to remembering news reporters who
died doing their jobs in the preceding year.
