Lunzer: Foley a Hero Who Died in Pursuit of Truth and Justice

Guild President Bernie Lunzer issued this statement today on the execution of journalist James Foley: “Journalists like James Foley put themselves in harm’s way to report the truth about what war does to people of all religions and ethnicities. They are heroes and should be protected by everyone who wants a world based on fairness and justice. Our hearts go out to the Foley family at this terrible time. We condemn the heinous act committed upon an innocent for the sole purpose of spreading fear and hate. Together with all journalists, we will continue to pursue the truth and do everything in our power to keep journalists safe.”
