Committee to Protect Journalists, 6. april 2020

The biggest challenge comes from this toxic atmosphere which the government has created towards critical journalism. The prime minister regularly lashes out against news outlets, including the public broadcaster, accusing them of spreading lies and fake news.

Photos of journalists critical to the government are regularly published in pro-government media. They frame us as “terrorists” and “revolutionaries,” which triggers online attacks from the public, mostly supporters of ruling parties, against us.

In online attacks, we are called traitors and enemies of the nation. We receive daily threats on social media. A recent one, for example, came from a doctor who said that once I get the virus, I will not get treated properly. There have been already three cases when TV crews from the public broadcaster were attacked because of their journalistic work.
