Serbia’s Media Stage Blackout Protest

Serbia’s independent media staged a blackout last week to warn against what they say is President Aleksandar Vucic’s muzzling of the press by intimidation, threats and financial pressure. Dozens of Serbian media outlets and NGOs darkened their web pages for one hour at noon on September 28, with a white inscription warning: “This is what it looks like when there is no free press!” Vucic, a former extreme nationalist who now calls himself a reformist, has dismissed the accusations.
