Inside Media: Journalists Under Threat

Feb 7 @ 2:30 pm at the Newseum in Washington D.C.

Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, talks about his new book, “The New Censorship: Inside the Global Battle for Media Freedom.”

The book examines how journalists are increasingly vulnerable to attack by authoritarian governments, militants, criminals and terrorists, who all seek to use technology, political pressure and violence to set the global information agenda.

Simon has written widely on press freedom issues for publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Columbia Journalism Review, The New York Review and Slate, and is featured regularly on NPR, BBC and CNN.

A book signing will follow the program.
