The Committee to Protect Journalists is an independent, nonprofit organization that promotes press freedom worldwide. "We defend the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal."
The alleged assault of Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs by candidate Greg Gianforte, who won last week’s special congressional election in Montana, sends an unacceptable signal that physical assault is an appropriate response to unwanted questioning by a journalist.
“The mistreatment of journalists got physical this week… In a climate of rising hostility toward journalists in the Trump era, some feared it was just a matter of time. In fact, it’s not exactly an isolated event. Earlier this month, in Alaska, a reporter says he was slapped by a state senator. In DC, a reporter says he was pinned against the wall by security guards as he tried to question the FCC Commisioner, and in West Virginia, a journalist was arrested after questioning U.S. Health Secretary Tom Price.” – CNN
