World Press Freedom Index Released

WebThe other day a report about media freedom crossed my desk, and I thought I would share some of the findings.

Finland, the Netherlands and Norway have distinguished themselves as countries that most respect media freedom. Those in the last three positions are dictatorial countries – Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea.

The results are from the 2013 Reporters Without Borders World Press Free Index.

“The Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders does not take direct account of the kind of political system but it is clear that democracies provide better protection for the freedom to produce and circulate accurate news and information than countries where human rights are flouted,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.
