#JournalismTalks: Journalism Under Digital Siege

The theme for Press Freedom Day this year was “Journalism under Digital Siege”. It looked at issues regarding media censorship and the harassment and violation of journalists’ rights. The fraycollege #JournalismTalks Twitter Space, hosted by Fray on May 5th, aimed to understand and touch on the transparency of digital platforms, empowering citizens with media and informed literacy and media viability.
