The latest Bad News from Italy – March 1st, 2020


Report on the worrying news about intimidation and threats to restrain freedom of the press in Italy and in Europe. All news come from the continuos monitoring done by the Ossigeno team

How many journalists are intimidated in Italy? Ossigeno has launched a comparative analysis between the data coming from its field monitoring and those published by other sources. The first results reveal very huge differences. This requires reflection, on how and why the most serious violations of the right to information in our country are represented in such a different way, because it is very different to say that there have been 29 or 156 or 1886 threatened without explaining how such results can coexist
