Reporters Without Borders have published the 2015 World Press Freedom Index, the annual analysis of media freedom throughout the world. Unsurprisingly, the top three slots are filled by Scandinavian countries Finland, Norway and Denmark – with Finland in first place for the fifth consecutive year – while the bottom three countries Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea represent the worst places on earth to be a journalist.
According to RSF, “The 2015 World Press Freedom Index highlights the worldwide deterioration in freedom of information in 2014. Beset by wars, the growing threat from non-state operatives, violence during demonstrations and the economic crisis, media freedom is in retreat on all five continents.”
