World Freedom of the Press Index

Aloha,

It is interesting to review how free is our press (looking at it as a citizen of the world) from time to time, as Freedom of Press a topic most of us take for granted making no allowances to what we read .

What influences this freedom; what economic factors have a bearing and how terrorism and cyber crime abrogates it are truly fascinating. In a global view we can see all of the above and more that makes it impossible to have a press which can be called 'truly free'.

Reporters without Borders a France based non-profit using the methodology ranks more than 180 nations on the basis of Freedom of the press and publishes a list  every year. Here is a screen capture from its web site.
