The Azerbaijani government “controls our movement, our freedom to cover the conflict. There is a “nanny” with us, constantly”.
Catherine Norris-Trent, a journalist for the French TV channel France 24 – one of only a few representatives of the international press that Azerbaijan has let in – warns viewers that they are not able to cover the conflict the way they need to.
The journalist tells the viewers that the “nanny” from the government of Azerbaijan is with them all the time – the person who tells them what and where to shoot/record. This makes it “very difficult” to get true and precise picture of what’s going on.
“We are always trying to understand how true the picture that is presented to us [in Azerbaijan] is,” the journalist notes.
