Killing The Truth

Every week, somewhere in the world, a journalist is killed.

Because their reporting uncovered a truth that someone wants hidden.

Most of the murders are never solved. That their killers go free matters - to all of us. Because investigations are abandoned, power and corruption goes unchallenged – and democracy is weakened.

Killing the Truth explores the cases of four remarkable journalists who paid the ultimate price for their uncompromising pursuit of the truth.

Killing the Truth is a podcast by openDemocracy in partnership with A Safer World for The Truth. Music and sound design is by Lee Sparey. Research by Anita Mureithi. Written and produced by Penny Dale, a freelance journalist who specialises in producing podcasts and audio documentaries. She previously worked for the BBC World Service.
