Journalism is not a crime - on the state of press freedom in Europe and the world. With Katja Gloger

"Democracies live off public debate and criticism. Anyone who polishes or even incites uncomfortable journalists and casts doubt on the credibility of the media deliberately destroys the foundations of a democratic society," said Stern's long-time correspondent in Moscow and Washington and ROG executive spokeswoman Katja Gloger. Media-hostile hate speech as a state program has long ceased to be restricted to repressive regimes such as those in Turkey or Egypt, where governments defame and persecute critical...
