YouTube Journalists Memorial Channel
Every morning when we spread out newspapers or open news websites to read what's happening all over the world, we're reading news or events covered by journalists, whose job is to find out newsworthy things happen around us and the truth behind these things. We might have got used to reading news and seldom think of the price paid to obtain them. Sometimes journalists have to risk of being arrested or even killed when they try to cover some important events. The fact is that every year there have been journalists got killed or imprisoned on line of duty.

YouTube has been developing rapidly since it was founded. It is the biggest video sharing websites and serves video streams uploaded by people all over the world. YouTube is not only a place where you can find and share interesting short video clips, but also plays an important part in many areas, such as culture, society and Politics with its all kinds of channels.
