Attacks on the Press in 2007 by Committee to Protect Journalists
Book DescriptionOn the streets of Rangoon, Burmese troops gun down a photographer documenting public protests. In homes across Venezuela, the nation's oldest television station goes dark after the president pulls the broadcaster's license. Throughout the Horn of Africa, journalists flee in record numbers because of threats and harassment. And in a Moscow courtyard, the lifeless body of an investigative reporter is found under mysterious circumstances. Attacks on the Press in 2007 recounts hundreds of threats to the news media and explores the trends underlying the news. International pressure has spurred improvements in nations such as China, where the government has eased media restrictions for the 2008 Olympics.But the erosion of U.S. influence in Latin America has led to setbacks for press freedom, and impunity in journalist murders remains a pervasive problem in nations from Russia to the Philippines. Compiled annually by the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent, nonprofit organization, "Attacks on the Press" is the most authoritative reference guide to press freedom worldwide, providing factual and unbiased analyses of media conditions in 120 nations. It includes a preface by Christiane Amanpour, CNN's chief international correspondent and an introduction by Joel Simon, the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists.
