Press Freedom Group Concerned over Europe, Welcomes U.S. Progress


The eighth annual Reporters Without Borders ranking of the state of media freedom in 175 nations and political entities shows a decline in some European countries and dramatic declines in Israel and Iran, but the organization also welcomes progress by the United States over the past year.

Unfortunately, this U.S. State Department report mentions nothing from the annual Reporters Without Borders document about the media situation in Russia. does report that RSF said the state of press freedom in Iran is now only better than in Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea, “where the media are so suppressed they are nonexistent.”
