Journalists across America are using the hashtag #WeStandWithWDBJ in solidarity with the two reporters who were murdered on-air in Moneta, Virginia.
The Committee to Protect Journalists counted 39 deaths of journalists in 2015 before Wednesday’s brutal murder, CNN Money reported. The deaths of reporter Alison Parker, 24, and photojournalist Adam West were the first in the US since 2007.
Reporters, photojournalists and producers offered their condolences in the hours after the murders.
