This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website.

2003 World Press Freedom Rankings

Reporters Without Borders has released its 2003 rankings of world press freedom.

Australia is ranked 50th on the list of 166 countries. Finland is first and North Korea last.

According to Reporters Without Borders: “The ranking measures the state of press freedom in the world. It reflects the degree of freedom that journalists and news organisations enjoy in each country, and the efforts undertaken by the state to respect and ensure respect for this freedom.”

The rankings are based on local responses to a questionnaire with 53 criteria for assessing the state of press freedom in each country.
