PostSubject: The world goes backwards on media freedom: World Press Freedom Day   Wed May 03, 2017 3:52 am

As we observe World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd this week, we have a look at statesí interference in press freedoms in the MENA region and the West. The abuses on press freedom run the gamut from thin-skinned leaders who canít take criticism to conflict zones that make it difficult for any reporters to do their jobs. But while the MENA region is often criticized for its freedom of speech record, we ask, is the West any better?†

Under the pretext of terrorism, religion, fake news and state security, press freedom is under attack around the world. We focus on incidents that have occurred and laws that have been passed over the last year in Jordan, the UAE, Egypt, Turkey, Germany, France, the UK and US, on what can and canít be said.




Image 1 of 10:†The Press Freedom Index 2017 shows an increase in the number of countries where the media freedom situation is grave. The Index evaluates pluralism, independence of the media, quality of legislative framework and safety of journalists in each country.
