CPJ's Brazil report
spurs government meetings on press freedom
CPJ board member María Teresa Ronderos
and CPJ Senior Program Coordinator Carlos Lauría traveled to Brasilia this
month to launch a new special report, "Halftime
for the Brazilian press," and met with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, as
well as other high-level government officials. CPJ also presented President Rousseff
with the report's recommendations.
Brazil is home to a vibrant investigative press, but
journalists are murdered regularly and their killers go free, CPJ's report
found. Brazil is the 11th deadliest country in the world for journalists, and
at least 10 have been killed in direct reprisal for their work since President
Rousseff came to power, CPJ research shows.
