Dear [Name of Candidate],

I am writing to ask you what you plan to do to defend the First Amendment, freedom of the press, and the fundamental rights of journalists to practice their profession freely in what has become an increasingly hostile environment for information and news providers.

The United States, which enshrines press freedom in the First Amendment of its Constitution, is currently witnessing a drastic decline in media freedom. On June 28, one of the most horrific attacks on press freedom in the United States occurred when five employees, including four reporters, were killed at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland. According to the US Press Freedom Tracker, which comprehensively documents press freedom violations in the US committed by national, state, and local authorities as well as private individuals, 33 journalists were arrested, 43 were physically attacked, and 15 seizures of journalists’ equipment occurred in 2017. In one of these incidents, Rep. Greg Gianforte physically assaulted a Guardian journalist the night before his state’s election. While covering the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, journalists were impersonated on social media, impeding their ability to accurately investigate the facts and disseminate information which could be vital to preventing a similar tragedy. This hostility towards the press not only risks compromising the American public’s right to be informed through journalists’ reporting, but can also degrade the public’s trust in the media itself.

This is not a partisan issue; it is a fundamental right that impacts every American no matter their politics. Journalism is at the crux of our democracy, and communities everywhere rely on journalists to provide them with information that is essential to their daily decision-making processes. It was local investigative journalist Curt Guyette who broke the story about Flint, Michigan’s lack of access to clean water in 2014, prompting years of class-action lawsuits, protests, and subsequent federal assistance to the city in order to try to resolve the crisis. Reporters Megan Twohey, Jodi Kantor, and Ronan Farrow publicized sexual assault allegations against influential Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in 2017, leading to the ubiquitous and powerful #MeToo movement which brought decades of sexual abuse and harassment across multiple industries to light.

Yet freedom of the press in the US is currently in dire need of congressional support. It is our civic duty as one of the world’s leading democracies to uphold principles that support and protect the rights of journalists so that they may hold those in power accountable and ensure an informed and engaged community.

If you are elected, what do you plan to do to protect this utterly essential component of our democracy? What are your plans to protect the public’s right to be informed through a free and independent press?

Sincerely,
[Your name]

I’m calling to let you know that [candidate/representative]'s stance on freedom of the press is extremely important in my decision to vote. I feel that this is not a partisan issue, but a fundamental right that impacts every American no matter their politics.

Journalists play a crucial role in our democracy by keeping us informed and holding those in power accountable. And yet in the US, attacks on journalists are becoming more common, undermining the media's role and creating opportunities for government overreach, the erosion of press freedom, and impeding our right to be informed. I’m contacting my candidates and encouraging them to defend press freedom during their midterm election campaign. Join me at DefendPressFreedom.com

Press freedom is declining in the US at an alarming rate. Physical, verbal, and online attacks against journalists have increased drastically in the last two years. As the US midterm elections approach, we must remind our congressional candidates that journalists play a crucial role in our democracy by keeping us informed and holding those in power accountable.

    MÉTODO DE DEPREDACIÓN: absoluta falta de complejos




    Cuando Xi Jinping llegó al poder en China, en 2013, cabía esperar que pusiera en marcha reformas liberales, pues su familia fue víctima de la Revolución Cultural. Por el contrario, fortaleció el control del régimen sobre la información y restauró en pocos años una cultura mediática digna de la era maoísta. Al apoyarse en el uso masivo de nuevas tecnologías, Xi Jinping ha impuesto un modelo social basado en la censura, la propaganda y la vigilancia. La Administración del Ciberespacio de China (CAC), una organización supervisada por el propio Xi Jinping, está impidiendo que los mil millones de usuarios de internet del país reciban y comuniquen libremente informaciones independientes. Los medios estatales no solo deben obedecer al Partido, sino también "reflejar su voluntad, proteger su autoridad y su unidad". La aplicación para teléfonos inteligentes “Estudiar a Xi, hacer más fuerte al país”, que ha sido obligatoria para todos los periodistas desde 2019, no solo permite que el régimen compruebe su lealtad, sino que también se sospecha que accede a los datos almacenados en sus teléfonos. Bajo el mandato de Xi Jinping, el acoso a los corresponsales extranjeros y sus fuentes ha alcanzado nuevos récords, mientras que en el exterior el régimen hace todo lo posible por promover y exportar su modelo opresivo.



    OBJETIVOS PREDILECTOS: todo lo que no esté alineado



    La China de Xi Jinping es la mayor prisión del mundo para los defensores de la libertad de prensa. En 2021 hay al menos 115 personas encarceladas en condiciones que a menudo hacen temer por sus vidas. Para silenciar a los periodistas que no se adscriben a la narrativa oficial, se suele utilizar el sistema de "arresto domiciliario en un lugar designado" (RSLD), un eufemismo para nombrar la reclusión en régimen de aislamiento en las "cárceles negras" chinas, donde los presos son despojados de sus derechos y corren el riesgo de ser torturados. Kunchok Jinpa, que era una de las principales fuentes de información del Tíbet para los medios, murió en febrero de 2021 a causa de los malos tratos recibidos bajo custodia. Lo mismo les ocurrió al ganador del Premio Nobel de la Paz y Premio RSF a la Libertad de Prensa, Liu Xiaobo, y al comentarista político Yang Tongyan, en 2017.


    DISCURSO OFICIAL: adoctrinamiento paternalista


    Los medios dirigidos por el Partido y el gobierno son herramientas de propaganda que deben tener al Partido como apellido”. (Discurso de Xi Jinping del 19 de febrero de 2016 durante una gira de inspección de los medios estatales).

    Los periodistas deben amar al Partido, proteger al Partido y seguir fielmente el liderazgo del Partido con el pensamiento, en lo político y con sus actos”. (Sobre los reporteros de CCTV, de la agencia de noticias Xinhua y del periódico People's Daily, en febrero de 2016).
