"The magnitude of events, the need for information about other societies and other cultures is so great that never before has the need for journalists to do their job been greater. But at the same time, the pressures on journalists are perhaps greater than they’ve ever been. In every country, the press is very susceptible to the overall nature of opinion and the power of governments to shape agendas."Michael Massing (jury member 2004)
