Not Our Mission   

By Unknown
     


In your piece "A 911 for Journalists" (The Beat, October/November), you suggest that the Committee to Protect Journalists told freelancer Vanessa Leggett that CPJ could not help her because she was not in a "life-or-death" situation. (Leggett was facing a jail sentence for refusing to hand over notes to a federal grand jury.)

The point does not accurately reflect CPJ's actions in the Leggett case, or the organization's mission.

On August 7, 2001, shortly after Leggett's imprisonment, CPJ protested the incarceration in a public letter to Attorney General John Ashcroft and urged a reversal of the contempt order that landed her in jail. Our letter noted that only three journalists were then imprisoned in the entire Western hemisphere: Vanessa Leggett and two Cubans. This shameful comparison with Cuba (where journalists are routinely imprisoned) underscored our argument that the U.S. was sending "exactly the wrong signal to authoritarian governments, who may now show even less restraint in using state power to restrict press freedom."

CPJ was established in 1981 because existing U.S.-based journalism organizations did not take up the cases of journalists outside the United States. CPJ's work was intended to fill the void, by responding to attacks on the press worldwide.

Because such a strong advocacy group exists in the United States, CPJ staff often urges U.S. journalists such as Vanessa Leggett to report their cases to the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
