Joel Simon & Kathleen Carroll on The New Censorship

Journalists are being imprisoned and killed in record numbers. Online surveillance is annihilating privacy, and the Internet can be brought under government control at any time. Joel Simon, the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, warns that we can no longer assume our global information ecosystem is stable, protected, and robust. Journalists -- and the crucial news they report -- 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.

Join Joel Simon and Kathleen Carroll, executive editor of The Associated Press, in a conversation on Simon's new book, The New Censorship: Inside the Global Battle for Media Freedom , published by Columbia Journalism Review Books.

Journalism on the Ground: The Risks and Importance of International Reporting

Journalism on the Ground

International reporting is fraught with dangers, challenges, and risks. Journalists who pack up and head to all corners of the world in pursuit of providing media consumers with accurate accounts of what's occurring on the ground often put their lives on the line for "the story."

In the past several weeks, the world has looked on as two journalists have lost their lives at the hands of ISIS. Others are still held as prisoners by ISIS. And elsewhere around the world, journalists are detained and face numerous risks to their health and well-being.
