Defending Media Freedom in 2021

World Press Freedom Day, observed on May 3, is a reminder to governments of the need to respect their commitments to press freedom. It’s also a day to extend support to journalists and newsrooms who are being attacked, restrained, arrested and silenced for speaking truth to power. For this event we were joined by panelists Devi Asmarani from Magdalene, Indonesia, Lara Bitar from The Public Source, Lebanon, Tania Montalvo from Animal Politico, Mexico and Asha Mwilu from Debunk Media, Kenya.

Network Partners

We collaborate with non-profit organizations, creating open source technology to curate, annotate, fact-check, verify and debunk online misinformation.
