Courageous Attorney Fights for Press Freedom in Zimbabwe Attorney Beatrice Mtetwa stands up for a free and independent press. What's remarkable is that she stands up for these ideals and for the rule of law in Zimbabwe, where the government of Robert Mugabe holds press freedom in low regard. On the next Sound of Ideas, we visit with Mtetwa, winner of this year's Inamori Ethics Prize from Case Western Reserve University, and with one of the journalists she fought for in Zimbabwe, Hudson native Andrew Meldrum. Don't miss it, Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.
