Anita Komuves is a reporter in Hungary, working for a weekly news magazine. She worked with Press Uncuffed during her Fulbright year at the University of Maryland in 2015 and worked on stories covering press freedom issues while interning at The Washington Post. After her return to her native country, she gained first-hand experience about how media is repressed when the newspaper she had worked far was suddenly shut down for political reasons. @KolindaKovacs
Pressuncuffed.org seeks to encourage and promote rigorous student reporting, scholarly research and debate on the role of, and obstacles to, independent journalism in the United States and abroad. Our website features reporting by University of Maryland students about press freedom in the United States and abroad. It also offers resources to instructors elsewhere who may want to teach classes or hold workshops on this theme. In the near future, this site will become a place for student work from around the country and abroad.
