UN calls for promotion and protection of fundamental freedoms on World Press Freedom DayListen /
The past two decades have witnessed a revolution in journalism, creating exciting opportunities for sharing information.
Today's expanded "media landscape" means journalists are now reporting via blogs, podcasts, or social media, in addition to traditional media such as radio, television and newspapers.
On World Press Freedom Day, celebrated on 3 May, the UN wants to ensure that journalists are free to report their stories, whether online or not.
