Journalism is under "digital siege"
The global climate for journalists has become more perilous as autocrats weaponize the media to consolidate power. Those efforts are increasingly being carried out through surveillance and digital attacks. The theme for the 2022 World Press Freedom Day, which occurs annually on May 3, is "journalism under digital siege." The day is meant to highlight the growing risks journalists face online that are compromising free and fair journalism, including digital surveillance, online threats and harassment, or laws meant to stifle digital reporting.
