Fighting for Free and Fair Press

In this episode of Building the Future, Dan Runde hosts Jamie Fly (President, Radio Free Europe) to discuss Radio Free Europe’s work providing free and independent media in countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. Jamie talks about overcoming interference by governments that seek to prevent the delivery of news, as well as addressing technological barriers to reaching rural areas. Dan and Jamie also discuss covering Covid-19 in Iran, troll farm attacks on journalists, and the weaponization of “fake news.”
