Abstract:

Nowhere are attacks on the press more visible than in Iraq, where more than 30 journalists have died since the war began. Yet press freedom is under siege in every corner of the world-from Russia, where brutal Soviet-style repression has returned, to the Philippines, where journalists are murdered with impunity. In Cuba, a government crackdown on the independent press has left more than 25 journalists languishing in prison. And in Bangladesh, journalists are regularly targeted for violent attack. Attacks on the Press in 2004 provides factual and unbiased accounts of press freedom abuses, as well as analysis of the media climates in 100 countries.
