Reporters sans frontieres/Reporters Without Borders

    Reporters sans frontieres/Reporters Without Borders is a Media/Human Righs group that monitors the issue of freedom of the press globally. An outstanding source.
According to their website: “Reporters Without Borders’ maintains this trilingual (French, English and Spanish) website in order to keep a daily tally of attacks on press freedom as they occur throughout the world. Updated several times a day, it functions like a press-freedom news agency. It gives Internet users an opportunity to act as a group to demand the release of jailed journalists by signing on-line petitions. To circumvent censorship, it presents occasionally articles that have been banned in their country of origin, hosts newspapers that have been closed down in their homeland and serves as a forum where journalists who have been “silenced” by authorities can voice their opinions. This website, which welcomes 150,000 to 200,000 visitors per month, also provides complete reports on cases covered in the press, as well as a daily “barometer” summarising the most recent attacks on press freedom.”
