Attacks on the Press. The New Face of Censorship

The latest, definitive assessment of the state of free press around the world Attacks on the Press is a comprehensive, annual account of press conditions worldwide, focusing this year on the new face of censorship perpetrated by governments and non-state actors. Compiled by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), the 2017 edition documents new dangers and threats to journalists and to the free and independent media. The risks are a combination of familiar censorship tactics applied in novel ways, and the exertion of pressure through unconventional means or at unprecedented levels. These censorship efforts range from withholding advertising to online trolling, website blocking to physical harassment, imprisonment to the murder of journalists. In the Americas, governments and non-state actors use new, sometimes subtle ways to limit journalists'ability to investigate wrongdoing. In Europe, authorities deploy intelligence services to intimidate the press in the name of national security. In Asia, governments block access to information online, and in some cases, punish those who manage to get around the obstacles. And throughout the world, terror groups are using the threat of targeted murder to compel journalists to refrain from covering crucial stories or otherwise self-censor. Attacks on the Press documents how these new forms of censorship are perpetrated and provides journalists with guidance on how to work around them, when possible, and how to ensure their own safety as well as the safety of their sources and people with whom they work. The book enables readers to: Examine the state of free media around the world Learn which nations violate press freedom with impunity Discover the most dangerous beats and regions Delve inside specific, increasingly complex challenges CPJ's mission is to defend the rights of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal. Attacks on the Press provides a platform for direct advocacy with governments and the diplomatic community, for giving voice to journalists globally, and for ensuring that those journalists have a seat in discussions at the United Nations, the Organization of American States, the European Union, the African Union, and others.

Committee to Protect Journalists

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) is an independent nonprofit organisation based in New York City[1] that promotes press freedom and defends the rights of journalists.



A group of U.S. foreign correspondents founded CPJ in 1981 in response to harassment from authoritarian governments.


CPJ organizes vigorous public protests and works through diplomatic channels to effect change. CPJ publishes articles, news releases, special reports, a biannual magazine called Dangerous Assignments,[2][3] and an annual worldwide survey of press freedom called Attacks on the Press.[4]

CPJ also administers the annual CPJ International Press Freedom Awards which honour journalists and press freedom advocates who have endured beatings, threats, intimidation, and prison for reporting the news.

CPJ compiles an annual list all journalists killed in the line of duty around the world. Since 1992, the first year of the CPJ list, over 850 journalists have been killed.[5] The organization's figures are typically lower than similar ongoing counts by Reporters Without Borders or the International Federation of Journalists because of CPJ's established parameters and confirmation process.[6]

CPJ is a founding member of the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX), a global network of more than 70 non-governmental organisations that monitors free expression violations around the world and defends journalists, writers, and others persecuted for exercising their right to freedom of expression.

Staff and directors

The current executive director of CPJ is journalist Joel Simon, who assumed the position in July 2006 after having served as deputy director since 2000.[7] His predecessor was veteran foreign correspondent Ann Cooper, who served as executive director from 1998 to 2006.[8]

CPJ's board of directors has included prominent US journalists including Christiane Amanpour, Tom Brokaw, Anne Garrels, Charlayne Hunter-Gault, Gwen Ifill, Jane Kramer, Anthony Lewis, Dave Marsh, Kati Marton, Michael Massing, Victor Navasky, Andres Oppenheimer, Clarence Page, Norman Pearlstine, Dan Rather, John Seigenthaler, and Mark Whitaker.
