At least seven journalists have been killed covering the war in Ukraine, and CPJ is investigating five other journalist deaths to determine if they were work-related. Watch this moving tribute that chronicles the stories of the journalists killed and includes testimonies from their friends, colleagues, and family.
CPJ observed World Press Freedom Day this week by renewing its call for the protection of journalists covering the war and hosting Truth, Lies, and War – a conversation about the importance of factual, independent reporting during the conflict. CPJ experts spoke about worldwide press freedom conditions to various media outlets. The organization’s new president, Jodie Ginsberg, talked to BBC World News, CNN’s Reliable Sources, and Al-Jazeera English.
