    The title is
    World Press Freedom Index 2019

    The only reason you know about it is because the Press is free enough to actually report it. If this was a country in black on the map you’d probably never know unless the story was leaked...like the Uighur situation in China.

    When some minority is shot 50 US news sites are reporting it. That is why we aren’t in red or black on the map.

    if you weren't such a moron and actually looked through the list, you would see USA actually ranks pretty low for a Western democracy at 48, below Asian countries such as South Korea and Taiwan, if this list was manipulated, they would put themselves on top, no?

    Top of the list is dominated by small, peaceful countries.

    I can write a news or more likely opinion based on facts to any white color countries above in very negative way.

    And see if their freedom of press really work.

    This PDF server is in the US (ie way over on the other side of the planet from Pakistan)...not in Indonesia and not in China...probably because over in your area "freedom of press really DOESN"T work"
