The 2017 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders reflects a world in which attacks on the media have become commonplace and strongmen are on the rise. We have reached the age of post-truth, propaganda, and suppression of freedoms. This campaign via Jung von Matt/Spree, shows the almost insurmountable challenges journalists are faced with in various corners of the world today and their relentless pursuit to overcome oppression and offer people the truth, no matter the risk.
