Contents Machine generated contents note: The lack of adequate preparation might make safety experts shudder, but faced with low pay and high risk, the only option for many conflict journalists is to learn on the fly. / Christiane Amanpour -- Lacking the support of an editor or established news organization, a young freelancer turned to a community of independent journalists who helped her find her way in a conflict zone. / Robert Mahoney -- Syria has reshaped the way war is covered. Faced with continuing journalist kidnappings and murders, one veteran reporter proposes a new approach. / Erin Banco -- Islamic State, Boko Haram, and Mexican drug cartels videotape their own violence, presenting a conundrum for the press. / Janine di Giovanni -- The world hardly knows what's happening in Libya. The information vacuum allows various groups to distort the truth and even to cause greater bloodshed. / Joel Simon / Samantha Libby -- Amid lawlessness in Paraguay, one journalist has his own security detail to fend off attacks smugglers and the henchmen of corrupt politicians. / Fadil Aliriza -- Working where violence is endemic takes a psychological toll on journalists and their families and hampers the ability to report. / John Otis -- Addis Ababa is using defense against terrorism to justify stifling the press and putting reporters in jail. / Daniel DeFraia -- Self-censorship, firings, and official harassment are transforming many Egyptian journalists into mouthpieces for the government. / Jacey Fortin -- The declining number of imprisoned journalists is a welcome change, but it does not indicate a more open approach toward the media in Turkey. / Mohamed Elmeshad -- When it comes to popular movements, no one knows better than Middle East leaders how powerful the Internet can be-and no one is doing more to undermine it. / Yavuz Baydar -- Journalists in the United Kingdom are besieged police, Parliament, pressure groups, public relations agents, and even publishers. / Courtney C. Radsch -- The invocation of antiquated laws and the introduction of restrictive new ones set a dangerous precedent for censorship in a country still finding its way as a democracy. / Liz Gerard -- In an environment where access to facts can be lifesaving, some West African governments appear as interested in arresting reporters as arresting a deadly disease. / Pedal Haffajee -- Many in Hong Kong fear China's blunt media restrictions, but the territory's journalists are more likely to encounter the more subtle weapons of Singapore. / Sue Valentine -- Only with expertise, practice, and expensive tools can the media protect sources in the digital age. Journalists now compete with spooks, and the spooks have the home-field advantage. / Madeline Earp -- As the United States confirms its value of free speech over privacy, Europe tilts in the opposite direction. / Tom Lowenthal -- The rise of right-wing groups across the continent leads to attacks on journalists-and a fierce debate in the profession over how to report on nationalist political parties. / Geoffrey King -- Corporate interests try to suppress unfavorable coverage through expensive lawsuits, the withholding of advertising, and the outright purchase of news outlets. / Jean-Paul Marthoz -- There was a moment when the Russian media was poised to join the West's in open and objective news coverage. That moment has passed. / Sumit Galhotra -- The shutdown of broadcasters, restrictions on reporting, blatant propaganda, and beatings, abductions, and killings of journalists leave people in eastern Ukraine and Crimea in the dark. / Ann Cooper -- Declining revenue poses one of the greatest challenges to today's media. Yet many journalists are scraping with help from new platforms and their own ingenuity. / Muzaffar Suleymanov.
