Press Freedom Index 2011/2012

U.S falls to 47th in press freedom rankings after Occupy crackdown

Sweeping protests around the world made it an extremely difficult year for the media, and tested journalists as never before, the annual report into press freedom reveals.

The annual report by Reporters Without Borders has been released, showing the United States fell 27 points on the list due to the many arrests of journalists covering Occupy Wall Street protests.

The slide in the United States places it just behind Comoros and Taiwan in a group with Argentina and Romania.

[...]

The country with the freest media in the world was Finland, followed by Norway, Estonia, the Netherlands and Austria. Eritrea was last, with North Korea just above.

we're right behind you though smile

just checked past lists and Austria is slowly but constantly climbing up the ladder, nice. and anything below 25 is officially considered a Banana Republic tonk so if you live there get out as long as you still can nod

Vanglorious... this is protected by the red, the black, and the green. With a key... sissy!
