The United States isn’t at the top when it comes to freedom of the press.
That’s what a new study by Reporters Without Borders suggests, anyway. The U.S. was ranked at No. 46 on the list, with Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Luxembourg and Andorra rounding out the top five.
“The ranking of some countries has also been affected by a tendency to interpret national security needs in an overly broad and abusive manner to the detriment of the right to inform and be informed,” the study said. “This trend constitutes a growing threat worldwide and is even endangering freedom of information in countries regarded as democracies.”
