Finland – Number One in Freedom of the Press According to New Report

Posted in Blog Entry in English by yemenity2010 on 16/02/2014

Processing the results as we speak… Another year, another ranking of press freedom in the world as we know it. Behind the report is Reporters Without Borders

Immediate observations from the map provided: In the top ten we find (and yes, in this case it’s a good thing to land on top) Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg, Andorra, Liechtenstein, Denmark, Iceland, New Zealand and my home country Sweden – in that specific order. In the brief opening statement from the organization, the bottom three countries are also named; Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea where according to Reporters Without Borders ”freedom of information is non-existent”. Moreover, these nations are described as ”news and information black holes and living hells for the journalists who inhabit them”. All in all, 180 countries have been investigated.

I hope to be able to delve a little more deeply into the contents of this report soon… If time allows. For now, more on this topic can be found at the Reporters Without Borders own website.
