REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS

Press freedom shrinks

Informing the public in North Africa, the Middle East and Iran is a very risky business. Local journalists work in fear of government repression and foreign journalists who come to report on events in a region scarred by violence and terrorism work in very dangerous conditions.

2004:

Worst record of press freedom

Being a journalist in Iran or the Arab world often means not crossing the red lines set by the authorities if you want to avoid the repression of long-established dictatorships, authoritarian regimes or paper democracies. Only the vigorous and irreverent press in Israel has any true independence in a democratic environment, despite pressures on it.
