World Press Freedom Day

21.04.2019 11:45

May 3rd marks the 26th anniversary of World Press Freedom Day. This year, the worldwide commemoration of the event will focus on the essential role that media plays in supporting elections and democracy, especially in the face of the increasing challenges of disinformation, declining trust in news media, and intimidation and violence against journalists.

As part of this effort, on May 2nd the U.S. Department of State will host an interactive webchat featuring journalists and policy experts who will discuss how the digital transformation of media is affecting election reporting and how increasing pressures on a free press undermine democracy.

In keeping with the theme of World Press Freedom Day 2019, the panel will discuss these topics, amongst others:

1) How digital transformation of the media is affecting election reporting, including disinformation.

2) How threats to freedom of the press undermine the critical role of media in democracy.

3) How a free press contributes to peace and democracy, especially during elections.

The panelists will also answer viewer questions and provide links to resources. This Facebook Live webchat will take place on Thursday, May 2, at 16:00 at #WPFD2019
