U.S. Press Freedom Tracker Keeps an Eye on Opposition to Journalists

The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker keeps a tally of actions against journalists on its homepage. As of Oct. 30, it lists seven journalists arrested, 40 journalists attacked, five journalists killed, and 19 journalists subpoenaed. Its About page notes, “Journalists in the United States face hostility from local and federal governments, along with a number of legal threats to themselves and their sources. This nonpartisan website aims to be the first to provide reliable, easy-to-access information on the number of press freedom violations in the United States—from journalists facing charges to reporters stopped at the U.S. border or asked to hand over their electronics.”

It continues, “The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker brings together more than two dozen press freedom groups to create a centralized repository for research. The data we gather will help inform advocacy, journalism, and legal action.”

For more information, view the About page.
