Free Press, Freedom Of Expression Knows The Censorship Of The Internet As The Media Moves Online

Governments around the world to develop new tools for journalists to censor the media as it moves increasingly online, the Committee to Protect Journalists said on Monday.

In a report published on the eve of World Press Freedom Day on Tuesday, said that the committee 69 journalists whose work appears mostly in line was imprisoned from December 1, represents nearly half of all imprisoned journalists worldwide.

Press advocacy group said that the complaints of sophisticated techniques are often combined with the physical intimidation of online journalists.

“These sophisticated, often invisible, the attacks are another front in the fight against the freedom of the press,” says Danny O’Brien, CPJ Internet Advocacy Coordinator and author of the report.

O’Brien said that the techniques go beyond the censorship of the Web, with government via the Internet to spy and sabotage the writers of independent news sites.

“The goal is not only to censor, but to block or interfere with the process of reporting and disseminating news and information,” he said.

The Committee examined 10 common strategies used by governments to suppress information.

These tools include e-mail supported by the State intended to make personal computers journalists in China, the closure of proprietary anti-censorship in Iran, the monopolistic control of the Internet in Ethiopia, and synchronous cyber attack in Belarus.
