Reporters Without Borders presents grim view of global media

A report on press freedom in 180 nations has cited a "deep and disturbing decline in respect for media freedom at both the global and regional levels". The 2016 World Press Freedom Index, compiled by Reporters Without Borders, pointed out how governments and private sector organisations are attacking journalistic freedom in order to save their interests.
The report, however, showed 3.71% deterioration in media freedom in 2016 from a year ago, with global indicator rising from 3719 points in 2015 to 3857 points in 2016 — the higher the indicator, the worse is media freedom. The decline since 2013 is 13.6%, according to the report.
