Daphne Caruana Galizia was a 53-year-old journalist and blogger on the island of Malta when she was assassinated in a car bombing earlier this week. She was known as an anti-corruption warrior, whose investigations have included Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat.
The Committee to Protect Journalists has spoken out about the murder. Deputy executive director Robert Mahoney (@RobertMMahoney) tells Here & Now's Robin Young that in the 36 years his organization has tracked violence against journalists, there has never been a more dangerous time.
