Censorship around the globe

The Committee to Protect Journalists put together an in-depth article about the top ten most censored Countries around the world. It’s a really fascinating read, highlighting the punishments for not towing party lines, number of jailed journalists and some of the techniques used to control what’s read and put out into the ether. I thought going into this that it would be pretty easy to guess who number one would be, surprisingly I was wrong (but it was close).

Living in a country where speech is protected and reporters are everywhere, it’s easy to forget or overlook that it can be much more difficult to report on the truth elsewhere. Makes me even more proud to work for a company that’s all about democratizing publishing.

Here’s a link to the article:
