Reporters without Borders adThe French press freedom group, Reporters Without Borders, has started to run ads by Saatchi & Saatchi that depict known French journalists: "Saatchi's Paris office created three graphic print and poster ads, one featuring leading TV journalist Christine Ockrent with a bullet hole in her forehead. The other two ads show male TV journalists -- Emmanuel Chain, who is in charge of a Sunday evening news magazine program, and Guillaume Durand, who hosts Campus, a popular literary talk show -- one apparently with a slashed throat and the other shot to death in a parking lot. The ads, for French journalists' group 'Reporters without Borders,' say: 'Start fighting for press freedom before you lose it.'"

Saatchi wants to run the ads in the U.S. Gothamist supports press freedom but wonders, after seeing the grisly Daniel Pearl images, do we really need this?
