Freedom House has released its Freedom of the Press 2009 survey, concluding that for the first time global press freedom has declined in every region. Furthermore, “the rollback was not confined to traditionally authoritarian states; with Israel, Italy and Hong Kong slipping from the study’s Free category to Partly Free status.”

The Middle East and North Africa continue to have “the world’s lowest level of press freedom” with Libya in particular being one of the worst-rated countries in the world.
