Under the Taliban, independent news outlets were banned. Afghans got their news from a government run newspaper, the Taliban's Radio Sharia and BBC radio broadcasts in Pashto and Dari. Today, dozens of private radio and TV stations and hundreds of newspapers and magazines compete to satisfy Afghans' growing appetite for information. As a child, Zarghoona Salehi fled with her family to Pakistan to escape fighting between rival militias. She returned in 2001 and began training as a journalist soon afterward. A reporter for Pajhwok Afghan News, the country's largest independent news agency, Zarghoona views journalism as a force for positive change. But in a country caught between a bloody history and an uncertain future, she also questions whether that change will ever be achieved.

This report is a part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "Lost in Translation: Telling Afghan Stories to the West" (http://bit.ly/nLoUOH) by Kathleen Flynn and Vanessa M. Gezari
