The Global Reporting Centre and the Committee to Protect Journalists have launched a global survey to investigate the effects of disinformation and harassment targeting journalists.

The survey “Shooting the Messenger: Credibility Attacks Against Journalists” is anonymous but respondents can add their email if they want to tell more. Journalists over 18 years old can participate, whether or not they have been targets of credibility attacks or harassment themselves.

The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. It asks about experiences of harassment or efforts to undermine reputation of journalists, and it requests basic information about respondent’s work as a journalist.

The survey is available in English, French, Hindi, Portuguese and Spanish and can be found here.
