World Press Freedom Day

It's World Press Freedom Day today so I thought I'd share a video with you (a new terrain for me, people!)  that highlights my recent trip to the Newseum in Washington D.C. -- a fantastic place to visit if you ever find yourself in the city. So many great exhibitions that not only traces the history of journalism, but also showcases the importance of press freedom and the brave work of journalists who often put their lives at risk to tell the stories where there are no voices.


"...were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter" - Thomas Jefferson

Side note: I am a total newb at making videos. Please forgive.
