January 2004 marks the tenth anniversary of the repeal of Section 31 of the Broadcasting Act, under which for two decades journalists were prohibited from broadcasting interviews with spokespersons for proscribed organizations. This constraint affected RTE's coverage of Northern Ireland in particular. This book details how a single instance of censorship raises universal concerns about the often fraught relationship between the state and the media in hundreds of countries across the globe.
