Nifty infographic of the week: Press freedom around the world

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

This week's nifty infographic comes from Reporters Without Borders, which released its 2013 World Press Freedom Index last week. Below is a map taken from the report, which shows the countries of the world color-coded by their level of press freedom (or lack thereof).

As usual, Scandinavia, New Zealand, and Canada (along with Namibia, which was surprising to me) lead the pack, with China, North Korea, Eritrea, and Turkmenistan bringing up the rear. The US has a "satisfactory situation," but the report notes that there were significant setbacks last year.
