RSF issues Handbook for Bloggers


Reporters sans frontières has issued a new handbook designed to assist bloggers and 'cyber-dissidents'.

The handbook is aimed at those who are seeking to disseminate their news and views in parts of the world where censorship may be making mainstream reporting difficult, dangerous or impossible.

As RSF state on their website: "Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest. Reporters Without Borders has produced this handbook to help them, with handy tips and technical advice on how to to remain anonymous and to get round censorship, by choosing the most suitable method for each situation."
