According to CPJ’s annual survey of imprisoned journalists, as of 1 December, 125 journalists were behind bars – two fewer than at the same point in 2007. Nearly half of them (56) were considered online journalists – bloggers, web-based reporters, or online editors – surpassing the number of print journalists for the first time.
Print reporters, editors, and photographers are the next largest category of jailed journalists, with 53 cases. Television and radio journalists and documentary filmmakers constitute the rest, says CPJ.
