Evan Gershkovich and the Assault on the Press

From a story on cjr.org by Kyle Pope headlined “Evan Gershkovich, the assault on democracy, and the press”:

Watching Evan Gershkovich at last week’s sham court hearing, standing inside a glass cage, brought me back to twenty-seven years ago, when I, like him, was a thirty-one-year-old foreign correspondent for the Wall Street Journal. Though I was never based in Russia, I did report on what had been the Soviet Union, looking for KGB agents at an abandoned steel plant and tracking Russian efforts to regain control of the old Silk Road. Though I’ve never met Gershkovich, I identify with what colleagues describe as his zeal for a story and his love for his job.
