The Reporters Without Borders website has a freedom of the press ranking. The “index measures the state of press freedom in the world. It reflects the degree of freedom that journalists and news organisations enjoy in each country, and the efforts made by the authorities to respect and ensure respect for this freedom.” Some of the rankings are as follows (the higher the ranking, the more press freedom):

  • #1 Iceland
  • #13 Canada
  • #29 Japan
  • #35 France
  • #36 U.S.A.
  • #73 Haiti
  • #173 (last) Eritrea
