FREE PRESS - Global Suppression

COMMENT:  This is especially important in the Trump attacks on our news media because they present a view other than his.  Remember Generalissimo Trump is never wrong, at least in his Alternate Universe.

"By murder, prison and rhetoric, here's how the global free press is being suppressed" PBS NewsHour 5/3/2017


SUMMARY:  Journalists around the world sometimes risk death or imprisonment to inform the public.  In Mexico, dozens have been killed by drug cartels, the Turkish government has been cracking down by closing newspapers and locking up reporters, and U.S. reporters are enduring accusations of “fake news.”  Joel Simon of the Committee to Protect Journalists joins William Brangham to discuss attacks on freedom.
