Yesterday in Virginia a journalist and cameraman were shot while broadcasting live from a strip mall in the town of Moneta near Roanoke, Virginia. The gunman appeared to be a disgruntled colleague who was recently fired. While such extreme events are rare for journalists in America, there are consistent dangers that we face every day. I spoke with Rory McClanahan, board president of the New Mexico Press Association and editor of the Mountain View Telegraph about some of what New Mexico journalists face.
