Fighting Back: Reporting in times of censorship
In countries where freedom of press is nonexistent and where independent press is constantly under scrutiny, many journalists face obstacles to writing the kind of stories they want to. In such countries, self-censorship becomes a way of survival.
Should journalists write their stories despite government censorship or should they stop using their pen as a show of protest? What is the most conscientious action for a journalist confronted with the limitations of censorship? Are you in a country where you have to self-censor in order to survive as a journalist? What is your solution?
