How free is your country’s press?

The respected organisation Reporters Without Borders (RWB) each year publishes a review of the state of press freedom all around the world.

This year, the top five are Norway, Finland, Sweden, Netherlands and Denmark. The bottom five are Vietnam, China, Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan. You can see a ranking of 180 countries and a global map here.

The UK rose seven places to number 33 on the list and RWB made these comments. The US fell to 48 and RWB made these observations.
