The Challenges Facing Freedom of Expression and Speech
Journalists and people with vital information have for long been on a slippery path of notifying the public of the events in the societies. Some have been physically assaulted, insulted, branded traitors, threatened, or sometimes murdered by people whose dealings they expose. Furthermore, some governments in authoritarian countries such as Pakistan. Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Russia, Saudi Arabia, China and even Turkey are increasingly prohibiting free press gagging their media.
Additionally, there is another problem of media bias where writers and reporters report based on their personal convictions and distorted truths. This is the reason why various studies show that only 33% of the USA Public trust the media; a figure that drops to 24% in the UK.
The media outlets lack a global audience due to language barriers and homegrown media outlets services that lack an international perspective. Apres will provide a global ecosystem where the public and journalists will interact and share information.
Lastly, the anonymity of information providers is often not guaranteed given that some individuals can go to great lengths to uncover the “leaker”. Apres will be a safe haven for journalists with the ability to report the sensitive and risky news.
