„Journalism can never be silent: that is its greatest virtue and its greatest fault. It must speak, and speak immediately, while the echoes of wonder, the claims of triumph and the signs of horror are still in the air.“ Henry Anatole Grunwald, Managing Editor Time Magazine, ambassador of the USA to Austria (1922-2005).
In many countries of the world, the greatest virtue of journalism - to look closely and not to remain silent - is often a curse for journalists personally: Where media are not a natural pillar of democracy, they often risk personal safety, earnings and sometimes their lives to report on what moves their country. This website is dedicated to them.
