At a U.N. press conference today, CPJ Chairman Paul Steiger announces the release of Attacks on the Press. He's joined by CPJ's Joel Simon, Bob Dietz, and Mohamed Abdel Dayem.
This afternoon we sent out a press release announcing a $100,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation to support CPJ's Global Campaign Against Impunity. The campaign enters its third year in 2011, having achieved some significant successes, including high-level commitment to prosecute the killers of journalist in the Philippines and Russia. Our goal in the year ahead is to turn those commitments into results.
