الكتابة عن حرية الصحافة

My thinking on writing about freedom of the press is that it should be normal and regular and remind people that without freedom of the press there really is no news media worth the attention. It needs to be fair and complete and to tell stories that give histories – stories that put countries and eras into context. Why does it matter that some people care in the Middle East about freedom of the press? That is the journalist’s job to explain.  The reason needs to be explained and repeated and expanded every time a story is written, and every time there needs to be a sense of who is accountable.
