What Happens When You Kill the Messenger in Nicaragua
For many Nicaraguans, the maxim that today's oppressed becomes tomorrow's oppressor is ringing all too true. In December 2018, the United Nations' human rights chief, former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet, denounced the Nicaraguan government of Daniel Ortega, urging Ortega to "immediately halt the persecution of human rights defenders, civil society organizations [and] journalists and news organizations that are critical of the government." Since Ortega returned to office in 2007, he and his allies have grown increasingly authoritarian, especially in the last couple of years. During this time, his administration has come to rely more on the security forces to suppress dissent, leading to hundreds of deaths in 2018. Directly in Ortega's sights has been the media, particularly print journalists who frequently criticize the administration. Ortega has labeled them enemies and accused them of publishing "fake news," while his family has also bought television stations and other media outlets to try

Waning public interest in foreign news has driven a crisis in the media industry.
Covering Conflict Zones for the Modern Media
My parents' stories about being foreign correspondents during the 1980s make me long for a very different time in journalism. Back then, most major national news outlets, including the Chicago Tribune and The Boston Globe, had well-staffed bureaus in the Middle East. And because the internet, hailed in its infancy as the savior of the news media, had not yet devastated a business model built around lucrative print advertising, there was enough money to ensure that foreign correspondents were paid a living wage.
