Product description


From his vantage point as director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, Joel Simon has worked tirelessly to get kidnapped or imprisoned reporters freed. He's campaigned globally for justice in cases of murdered journalists. In The New Censorship, he warns us of new threats - like the insidious information management techniques of "democratators" Vladimir Putin and Recip Tayyip Erdogan. Simon's prescriptions for how to counter these new challenges are wise and insightful. He offers hope to all who care about maintaining the free flow of information in a world full of would-be censors. -- Ann Cooper, Columbia Journalism School Joel Simon is a warrior for press freedom and the place of journalists in every culture and country. Here he writes with characteristic passion and insight on the importance of fighting press censorship around the world, reminding us that we have new tools but old demons remain. -- Tom Brokaw, NBC News Fascinating and comprehensive, The New Censorship should become a bible for anyone seeking an honest, up-to-date grasp of the global state of press freedom. Well written and lucidly argued, this is a must-read. -- Jon Lee Anderson, staff writer for The New Yorker, author of Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life Simon's assessment of what it means to be a journalist and his call to action at book's end are moving and practical. A must-read. Booklist (starred review) Simon makes a persuasive case that the global trend is toward less, not greater, freedom of the press. New Yorker A case for why the goal of upholding 'press freedom' needs to expand, in the digital age, to defending 'freedom of information.' -- David Greenberg The American Prospect
