Defeating the Censors

New information technologies were supposed to make censorship obsolete. Instead, they have made it more complicated. But even as censorship evolves, so too do the strategies of courageous journalism. Join CPJ for a panel discussion on what it takes to defeat the censors and protect sources -- and what journalists in the U.S. can learn from reporters who have worked in some of the world's most censored countries.

On April 25, the Committee to Protect Journalists launches its 2017 edition of Attacks on the Press, about the new face of censorship. Join CPJ and Columbia Journalism School's #CJSGlobal for a discussion of what it takes to defeat censorship and protect sources today -- and what journalists in the U.S. can learn from reporters who have worked in some of the world's most censored countries.
