The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) highlights the issue of legal bullying in its latest blog, focusing on how legal threats and actions are being used to intimidate journalists and restrict press freedom. These tactics undermine the role of the media and its ability to report freely and accurately. 

The IFJ calls for stronger protections for journalists against such legal harassment, emphasizing the importance of preserving a free and independent press in the face of increasing legal pressures.
