New threats against freedom of the press!

Reporters Without Borders: New threats against freedom of the press!

Reporters Without Borders has published its 2015 press freedom index. Conditions for journalists and independent media have got worse in the majority of the 180 countries assessed.

The targeted suppression or manipulation of the media in conflict regions such as Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, and the Palestinian territories is one of the most significant reasons for the general worsening of worldwide press freedom, according to the 2015 index published by Reporters Without Borders (RSF).

The organization said many countries cite the protection of national security interests to impose restrictions on press freedom.

Censorship cloaked in religion:

According to RSF, more and more countries are using bans on blasphemy or insulting religion to suppress criticism of politics. It included states such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, but also Kuwait and India in this group. In each of these countries in 2014, bloggers or journalists were arrested because they made critical comments about religious groups or state bodies trying to legitimize themselves using religion.
