Danny Fenster recounts life behind bars in Myanmar
Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
Apr 14, 2022

American journalist Danny Fenster was imprisoned in Myanmar for nearly six months in 2021. Now he is readjusting to normal life and getting back to reporting. He talks with Brian Stelter about his arrest; going into "reporter mode" in prison; experiencing a "sham trial;" and eventually winning his freedom. Fenster discusses the lack of due process in Myanmar, the role of state-run media, and the "challenge for [journalists] to make the story more compelling" as the citizens of Myanmar continue to suffer.
