Newspaper’s blank front page sends potent message

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon

Today, the nation’s largest subscription newspaper, the Wall Street Journal, left their front page empty in honor of their journalist, Evan Gershovich, who is being held against his will in Russia.  It was a special cover on top of the normal headline to honor Evan’s one year in captivity.

The WSJ noted that jailed journalists are at their highest point.

Several other pages were in tribute to their journalist held hostage.

We too, at the Taxpayers Association of Oregon, support freedom of the press and stand with Evan.
