Another young Russian journalist reporting on Russian corruption has fallen to his death. Or, was he pushed?

This time it was 32 year old Maxim Borodin who was "a reporter for the local Novy Den website, for which he had done tough stories about crime and political corruption, including Yevgeny Prigozhin, an oligarch indicted by the United States for running the 'troll factory' that helped Russia try to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election."

It should be noted that Trump who has called journalists "the enemy of the people" recently requested the Department of Homeland Security to compile a database of journalists. This is troubling given that Trump is such an admirer of Putin.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch editorialized:

"There can be no good reason for Homeland Security to collect data on news media operations. The solicitation calls for monitoring of 'media coverage in terms of content, volume, sentiment, geographical spread, top publications, media channels, reach, ... top posters, influencers, languages, momentum, circulation.'”
