AIRED: 12-05-2015

Today’s guest, Thomas Kielly, host of the INN World Report, joins me to honor courageous alternative media journalist, 29 year old Serena Shim, who died mysteriously in Turkey one year ago, where she was covering the ISIS siege of the Kurdish town of Kobani from the Turkish-Syrian border.for Iran’s Press TV. Shim was traveling in a rental car back to her hotel, when the car was allegedly struck by a cement truck on a divided highway with a physical barrier between oncoming traffic. She died in a hospital several days later of a “heart attack,” according to Turkish authorities. [Show starts at 9 minute mark.]

The alleged accident came just days after Shim received death threats from Turkish intelligence (MIT), who accused her of being a spy. In an interview with Press TV, Shim stated:

“I’m very surprised at this accusation – I even thought of approaching Turkish intelligence because I have nothing to hide… I am a bit worried, because…Turkey has been labeled by Reporters Without Borders as the largest prison for journalists…so I am frightened about what they might use against me… We were some of the first people on the ground –if not the first people – to get that story of…militants going in through the Turkish border…I’ve got images of them in World Food Organization trucks. It was very apparent that they were militants by their beards, by the clothes they wore, and they were going in there with NGO trucks.”

This story is reminiscent of American journalist Charles Horman killed during the Chilean Coup in 1973. Charles also knew inconvenient truths about U.S involvement in the overthrow of democratically elected President Salvador Allende, captured in the movie “Missing” by Costa Gravas, with Sissy Spacek.
