Attacks on the Press in 2008: A Worldwide Survey by the Committee to Protect Journalists
Committee to Protect Journalists, Feb 1, 2009 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 341 pages
Across Mexico, reporters are vanishing amid an escalating conflict between the government and drug lords. The Chinese government censors the Internet and harasses journalists during the Olympic Games, breaking its promise to promote free and open media. While Iraq remains the world's most dangerous place for the press, a short but brutal conflict in the breakaway regions of Georgia also claims the lives of reporters and photographers. Attacks on the Press in 2008offers factual and unbiased analyses of press conditions in 120 countries, while offering a behind-the-curtain look at how the international press survives --and thrives. Critical journalists continue to be imprisoned in countries such as Cuba, Tunisia, and Azerbaijan. Yet governments are struggling to silence bloggers who are reaching growing audiences throughout the Middle East and Asia. In Africa, a more vocal and technologically savvy press is successfully fighting official harassment. The world's most comprehensive guide to international press freedom, Attacks on the Press is compiled annually by the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent, nonprofit organization.
