Press freedom at risk in Egypt

New CPJ report looks at repressive tactics of successive governments

New York, August 7, 2013--Hopes for press freedom were high after the 2011 revolution ousted Hosni Mubarak. But more than two years later, a deeply polarized Egyptian press has been battered by an array of repressive tactics, from the legal and physical intimidation of Mohamed Morsi's tenure to the wide censorship of the new military-backed government. In a new report to be published on August 14, the Committee to Protect Journalists examines attacks on the press and provides recommendations to Egyptian authorities, political parties, news media, and the international community.

Journalist murders muzzle the press

CPJ to launch 2013 Impunity Index

New York, April 30, 2013 -- The Committee to Protect Journalists will release its 2013 Impunity Index, a global tally of countries with the highest number of unsolved press murders, on May 2, 2013. The index, which calculates unsolved journalist murders as a percentage of each country's population, shows that authorities are often unwilling or unable to pursue justice in journalist killings. Since 1992, more than 650 journalists have been murdered in direct relation to their work, a disturbing trend that sends a chilling message to those reporting uncomfortable truths.
