Attacks on the Press in 2008: Preface

By Carl Bernstein

When the Committee to Protect Journalists was founded in 1981, the prevailing threats to freedom of the press around the world were still from juntas, dictators, authoritarian regimes, and social systems determined to dominate the media as a means of maintaining control over citizens, usually within the boundaries of the nation-state. Toward that end, newspapers and television were nationalized or controlled by party organs, strict censorship prevailed, and officially sanctioned news was delivered expeditiously.

Ataques a la prensa en el 2008: Prólogo

Por Carl Bernstein

Cuando el Comité para la Protección de los Periodistas (CPJ, por sus siglas en inglés) fue fundado en 1981, las principales amenazas a la libertad de prensa en el mundo eran las juntas militares, los dictadores, los regímenes autoritarios y los sistemas sociales resueltos a dominar a los medios para mantener el control sobre los ciudadanos, en general dentro de los límites de la nación-estado. Con ese propósito, los diarios y la televisión fueron nacionalizados o controlados por organismos partidarios, prevaleció una censura estricta y las noticias autorizadas oficialmente eran divulgadas con celeridad.

Assaults continue on Azerbaijani reporter

New York, May 20, 2008—The Committee to Protect Journalists is gravely concerned about the safety of Agil Khalil, a reporter for the opposition daily Azadlyg who has been assaulted several times in the past three months. Authorities have taken no measures to guarantee his protection, according to local CPJ sources.

On May 10, Khalil tried to fly to Istanbul to visit his relatives, but border guards at the airport in Baku stopped him, citing an order by the Prosecutor-General’s Office, the Baku-based Institute for Reporters’ Freedom and Safety (IRFS) reported. The next day, May 11, Khalil tried to leave the country by land, but was turned away at the border for similar reasons.
