IAPA survey: Press freedom in Venezuela is at risk
The study assessed several issues concerning press freedom
The IAPA conducted a survey entitled "Press freedom in the Americas" among 101 journalist or editors in 12 countries of the continent. Based on the findings, 82% of the respondents believe that Venezuela is the country where press freedom is more at risk.
The study assessed several issues, such as the factors threatening freedom of speech in the Americas, aggressions against journalist and the media, impunity in cases involving free press violations, self-censorship, and the relation between journalists and their governments.
