The threat to press freedom extends beyond Israel's actions against Al Jazeera.

Protecting the ability of domestic and international media to operate freely is vital for upholding democratic principles and government accountability. Combating infringements on press freedom at home is as crucial as denouncing such transgressions abroad.
