Radio redux

Freedom on the airwaves

Our special report explores how in authoritarian regimes, radio is often the sole platform to resist censorship.

We can't do without radio. However many new forms of mass communication are invented, the grandmother of them all remains indispensable. From Peru to Jordan, it's radio journalists who are often the first, and the last, to defy censorship and push the boundaries.

Includes articles by: Gilliam Reynolds on rulers of the airwaves; Joe Queenan is looking for America on talk radio; Aryeh Neier on why free speech remains the best antidote; Martin Semukanya on the culture of caution enveloping Rwandan journalists.
