RSF 2016 World Press Freedom Index

The 2016 World Press Freedom Index has been published by Reporters sans Frontiers.  Established in 2002 it has become a useful tool for media freedom organisations across the globe.

Finland, once again, tops the list as being the country with the highest level of media freedom and, inevitably, North Korea and Eritrea languish at the very bottom.  In between, Commonwealth countries are fairly broadly spread across the middle and lower middle ground.  At the top end, New Zealand lies 5th and Jamaica 10th with Britain in 38th place.   Rwanda, at 161, is the lowest ranked Commonwealth country.
