    May 3rd marks the global survey on press freedom, something that I picked up on a couple of years ago.

    They’ve produced this rather nice map.

    Press Freedom Map
    Press Freedom Map – 2016

    Here’s the map as it stands last year.

    You can read more about press freedom on their website.

    Global press freedom declined to its lowest point in 13 years in 2016 amid unprecedented threats to journalists and media outlets in major democracies and new moves by authoritarian states to control the media, including beyond their borders.

    Censorship is another indicator of declining press freedom, and governments and other actors are finding new ways to promote repression, many of which compromise the necessity of an open internet. The CPJ analyzes countries to determine their status using a series of benchmarks, including:

    • the absence of privately owned or independent media,
    • blocking of websites,
    • restrictions on electronic recording and dissemination,
    • license requirements to conduct journalism,
    • restrictions on journalists’ movements,
    • monitoring of journalists by authorities,
    • jamming of foreign broadcasts, and
    • blocking of foreign correspondents.

    The resulting list of the 10 Most Censored Countries includes Eritrea, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Azerbaijan, Vietnam, Iran, China, Myanmar, and Cuba.

    1. The UK is fast becoming a gagging county too…lòok at how May is conducting her election campaign…some of the press in Cornwall were locked in a room…. those not locked away were allowed to ask only 3 censored pre arranged questions of the PM and NO FILMING of her responses was allowed….don’t think that’s freedom of the press as we understand it.

      1. Well. Facebook and Google take their freedom of speech for granted in Western countries.
        Many of the Eastern power-blocks have closed them down – Turkey, Russia, China, Philipines.
        It’s all very well having a free and liberal press, but some people seem to take the piss.
