Your tips help us report on threats to press freedom across the nation. If you are or know a journalist who has been arrested, assaulted, or been subject to a legal order, let us know.”

I object to any threats to press freedom.

In some cases, press freedom may be restricted by the employer of the newsperson?

There are daily examples of people working for family friendly, hometown pride-oriented local small town papers and TV news folks who avoid asking questions.

My question included no hate speech, insults, threats, foul language, attacking other commenters, or mention of any political party or personality.

I was blocked.

If a newsperson works in a safe environment, what prevents them from asking questions? Their boss?
