Attacks on the Press in 2001

Released by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization established to "monitor abuses against the press and promote press freedom around the world," Attacks on the Press 2001 documents the deaths, imprisonment, and abuses of journalists around the world within the past year. Prefaced by CPJ board member Anne Garrels with an introduction by CPJ's executive director Ann Cooper, the report contains an overview of media attacks arranged by country, along with three special press freedom reports on Syria, Burma, and Colombia. In addition, the report contains a Ten Worst Enemies of the Press section that focuses attention on individual leaders responsible for the world's worst abuses against the media. Topping the list are Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of Iran, President Jiang Zemin of China, and Liberian president Charles Taylor.
