China Named 2019's Biggest Jailer of Journalists

According to CPJ, China is holding at least 48 journalists for reasons connected to their work. When asked to respond, a Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman said that “no one is above the law.” This attitude shows why America’s leadership on this issue is vital.
