US Drops Again in Freedom of the Press

February 12, 2015

Paris, France – The United States dropped an additional three places on the list of Press Freedom, according to The Reporters Without Borders 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

The United States is now ranked 49th. Independent groups have confirmed that the media of the United States is tightly controlled by the government. Overall, the free press lost ground on every continent.

US citizens should realize that countries like El Salvador, Botswanna, Niger, and South Africa have a more free press. Access to information is heavily distorted and controlled in the US.
