Press freedom in Scandinavia
Reporters Without Borders has released their annual report on freedom of the press in the world. As usual, Scandinavian countries are hogging the no. 1 spot in RWBs ranking:
At the top of the Index once again are northern European countries Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, Norway and the Netherlands, where robust press freedom is firmly established.
The only country not in the shared no. 1 place is Sweden-stan. Germany is in 18th place, France in 30th. The US has, based on the imprisonment of NJT reporter Judith Miller, slipped 20 places.
