CPJ's Publication On Attacks On Journalists And The Media

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has published the 2014 edition of Attacks on the Press: Journalism on the World’s Front Lines. The 240-page study contains both country reports with concise accounts on assaults on media freedom and the freedom of information, and thematic studies on impunity, surveillance, media and markets, censorship, global development, the internet, security and nations at risk.

The thematic studies are the following. Impunity: When Journalists Are Killed, Witnesses May Be Next surveillance: The NSA Puts Journalists under a Cloud of Suspicion media and markets: Without Stronger Transparency, More Financial Crises Loom censorship: Would-Be Repressors Brandish ‘Ethics’ as Justification global development: Putting Press Freedom at the Heart of Anti-Poverty Efforts internet: How the United States’ Spying Strengthens China’s Hand security: Finding the Courage to Cover Sexual Violence ations at risk: CPJ Risk List: Where Press Freedom Suffered

“Every day, journalists around the world face incredible risks – from imprisonment and assassination to simply just ‘disappearing’ – all for the ethical practice of their profession. Caught between wars and uprisings and corrupt police and drug cartels, as well as increasingly oppressive censorship laws, they find themselves in some of the most dangerous situations imaginable,” says CPJ.
