Provoking cartoons and "information predators": The campaigns of World Press Freedom Day 2013

On World Press Freedom Day, several press freedom organizations underscored the preoccupying increase in attacks against media outlets and journalists around the world that made 2012 the deadliest year for journalists in the last decade.

To commemorate the day, the organizations released reports on the state of press freedom around the world and invited the public in general to join their campaigns. The Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas made a summary of some of these.
