LUCKY US. AS you watch the presidential debates between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, imagine getting imprisoned, sent into exile, or killed for expressing your rights to free speech and freedom of the press. The Committee to Protect Journalists just announced that it will honor four journalists "who risked their lives and liberty to reveal abuses of power and human rights violations in China, Liberia, Kyrgyzstan, and Brazil." Receiving the annual International Press Freedom Award at a banquet in late November in New York are Mauri König, a Brazilian investigative reporter; Mae Azango, a Liberian journalist; jailed Tibetan journalist Dhondup Wangchen; and Azimjon Askarov, a reporter serving a life term in Kyrgyzstan. According to CPJ, 70 journalists have been killed worldwide so far in 2012.
