On the September 11th edition of Your Call, it’s our Friday media roundtable. This week, we’ll have a conversation with the Committee to Protect Journalists' Joel Simon about his new book The New Censorship: Inside the Global Battle for Media Freedom.

He writes, “We’re so deluged by information that we fail to see the ways in which censorship and repression are actually creating gaps in the essential knowledge that we need." What is the state of the freedom of the press in the US and other courtiers around the world?  Who are the worst violators of the freedom of the press? And which countries have the best practices? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists
