CPJ's Impunity Campaign consultant to speak at the preview screening of Jim: The James Foley Story

CPJ's Impunity Campaign consultant Elisabeth Witchel will join panelists in a discussion following a preview screening of Jim: The James Foley Story. Foley was kidnapped in November 2012 in Syria. He was missing for almost two years before his captors executed him. Foley's death alerted the world to the rising risks journalists face covering frontline news today. The filmmaker, a close friend, looks at Foley's life and decision to report on the plight of civilians impacted by war. It interviews family, friends, journalists and fellow hostages. Other panelists include director Brian Oakes and photographer Daniel Rye. The event will take place on August 31, 2016 at 7:30 PM in Curzon Bloomsbury cinema in London.

My Islamic State Social Network

My first conversation with Islamic State was about my reporting. I had just shared an article I'd written about the terrorist group recruiting Western fighters on my Twitter when I saw that someone using the Twitter handle Abu Omar had also posted a link to the piece on his own account. His profile photo unabashedly displayed the black and white IS flag. As I clicked around his profile, I received a Twitter message from him:

Protecting Journalists Covering Conflict


It's dangerous being a reporter, and freelancers and local journalists are particularly vulnerable, which is why CPJ is a founding member of the ACOS Alliance, which stands for 'A Culture of Safety' and promotes the Freelance Journalist Safety Principles. News organizations and press groups have signed up to a list of principles designed to improve safety and help journalists and news organizations talk about safety with each other. Although there is no such thing as foolproof security, there are basic steps that news organizations and individual journalists can take to understand risk and improve their chances of protecting themselves and their sources. The videotaped beheadings of journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff spurred us all to do more. This page will guide both new and seasoned journalists to resources for improving physical and digital security.
