    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Singapore is among bottom - 150. To hell with press freedom. You don't need press freedom for political stability, economic growth etc.

    This has been the case in the United States (46th), which fell 13 places, one of the most significant declines, amid increased efforts to track down whistleblowers and the sources of leaks. The trial and conviction of Private Bradley Manning and the pursuit of NSA analyst Edward Snowden were warnings to all those thinking of assisting in the disclosure of sensitive information that would clearly be in the public interest.
    I smell political bias.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Who the **** are the outsiders to gauge our press freedom. The ballot box with free and fair elections is there.

    It has to do with their methodology. We really do lack in some of these:

    o Pluralism [indicator Plu]
     Mesure le degré de représentation des opinions dans l’espace médiatique
    o Media independance [indicator Ind]
     Measures the degree to which the media are able to function independently of the
    authorities
    o Environment and self-censorship [indicator EnA]
     Analyses the environment in which journalists work
    o Legislative framework [indicator CaL]
     Analyses the quality of the legislative framework and measures its effectiveness
    o Transparency [indicator Tra]
     Measures the transparency of the institutions and procedures that affect the production
    of news and information
    o Infrastructure [indicateur Inf]
     Measures the quality of the infrastructure that supports the production of news and
    information
