Journalists forbidden to enter Libya — but that doesn’t stop them from trying

Journalists in Libya face one of the toughest environments for news media — the government has forbidden foreign journalists from entering the country, suggesting they will be treated as Al Qaeda “collaborators” — but they’re still finding ways to get in and get their stories out, Brian Stelter reports in an interesting piece for The New York Times.

He continues: “The host of foreign journalists that arrived in eastern Libya from Egypt in recent days have reported being greeted like liberators by the antigovernment forces there. News executives said Thursday that they were making hour-by-hour determinations about where it was safe for their journalists to be — and about how much detail to disclose to viewers about their locations.”
