ABSTRACT
The article focuses on journalism in Zimbabwe. The government of President Robert Mugabe is an active opponent of press freedom, sometimes violently so. It has banned newspapers from publication, many journalists have been imprisoned, and some murdered. Foreign correspondents are banned from entering the country. Despite this, news continues to be reported from Zimbabwe, and there is widespread knowledge of Mugabe's abuses and of the country's almost-total economic collapse.
