Meryl Streep is showing her support for the freedom of the press by honoring Amal Clooney at the prestigious CPJ International Press Freedom Awards.
The Oscar-winning actress, 71, will present the human rights lawyer, 42, with the 2020 Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award during an online award ceremony on Nov. 19.
The award ceremony will showcase the work of this year’s awardees — which include four journalists from Bangladesh, Iran, Nigeria and Russia who have faced arrest or prosecution for their work.
Streep will highlight Clooney’s work as counsel for many journalists under threat.
“In times of unprecedented uncertainty, it’s journalists who are out there, gathering the facts and trying to help us make sense of it all,” Streep said. “By asking tough questions, and pursuing the truth at any cost, they are essential workers — serving the public and protecting democracy.”

“That’s why I’m proud to take part in this year’s International Press Freedom Awards and to continue supporting the vital work of the Committee to Protect Journalists,” she added.
Clooney will also be interviewed by reporter and 2018 Gwen Ifill Awardee Maria Ressa. The lawyer previously defended Ressa when she was persecuted in her home country of the Philippines for reporting on government corruption.
The award ceremony will be hosted by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. He’ll be joined by several other notable journalists such as Christiane Amanpour, Margaret Brennan, David Muir, Yamiche Alcindor and others.
Rosamund Pike, Samantha Bee and journalist Ronan Farrow will be included in calls to support press freedom.
The 2020 International Press Freedom Awards will be broadcast online at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] well as NBC News, CBS News and ABC News on Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. EST.

So, that's 19th November for the ceremony. I'll try not to be surprised this time!

Interesting how George's and Amal's interests are overlapping here: George with his interest in journalism ("son of a newsman") and Amal as a lawyer specialising in human rights.

JOURNALISM AWARDS
[size=46]WATCH: CPJ International Press Freedom Awards 2020[/size]
NOV 19, 2020 2:01 PM PHT


The Committee to Protect Journalists honors journalists from Bangladesh, Iran, Nigeria, and Russia, as well as international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney



The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) will honor 4 courageous journalists from Bangladesh, Iran, Nigeria, and Russia in the 2020 International Press Freedom Awards (IPFA). All 4 awardees have been arrested or have faced criminal prosecution in reprisal for their reporting.
This year’s IPFA awardees are the following:
Shahidul Alam (Bangladesh) is a renowned photojournalist and commenter, and founder of the Bangladeshi multimedia training organization the Pathshala Media Institute and the Drik photo library. In August 2018, Alam was detained after posting a video on social media about student protests in Dhaka.
Mohammad Mosaed (Iran) is a freelance economic reporter who investigates corruption, embezzlement, labor issues, economic sanctions, and popular protests. Mosaed was arrested in late 2019 in relation to a tweet and was released in early 2020. He was briefly arrested again in February after criticizing the government’s handling of COVID-19.
Dapo Olorunyomi (Nigeria) is the co-founder, CEO, and publisher of Nigerian newspaper Premium Times. During his decades-long career as a journalist, he has been a fierce defender of press freedom in Nigeria despite repeated government harassment.
Svetlana Prokopyeva (Russia) is a regional correspondent for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty or Radio Svoboda. She was charged with “justifying terrorism,” and her bank accounts were frozen in relation to comments she made on a suicide bombing attack in 2018.


CPJ will also honor international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney with the Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award, which recognizes extraordinary and sustained commitment to press freedom. Clooney has represented embattled reporters around the world and has promoted freedom of speech and journalism through the Clooney Foundation for Justice’s TrialWatch initiative.
Rappler’s Maria Ressa, who received the Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award in 2018, will be interviewing Clooney for this year’s IPFA show.
Watch the 2020 International Press Freedom Awards at 9 am on Friday, November 20 (Philippine time). – Rappler.com

This was very interesting and sad that journalists are being put through this just for telling the truth.

Terrific award acceptance speech by Amal.  She certainly has her work cut out for her in the years to come fighting for justice for a free press.
