One thought on “Less than 14% of World Lives in Countries with Free Press

  1. CounCounting most of the Western world as having a “free press” is incredibly misleading when vast tracts of it suffer corporate capture.

    A truer measure of a truly free press would be to survey how many newsrooms enjoy charters of editorial independence, and, provide the media accountability mechanisms to monitor their adherence.

    Alternatively, we can accept that measures like these contrast, sharply, with public trust surveys which show ‘journalists’ in these supposedly free press countries rank down with the used car salesmen and politicians.
