Reporters without Borders release 2022 World Press Freedom Index

The 2022 World Press Freedom Index, which measures the level of media freedom in 180 countries and territories has just been released.


This year’s Index reflects the disastrous effects of information chaos and polarisation at two levels, both in the media within countries and between countries at the international level.

As a result of the addition of 12 countries, including Belarus and Russia, this year’s Index has a record total of 28 countries on the RSF red list, where the situation is classified as “very bad”.

Thanks to the February 2021 coup d’état, which set the situation for journalists back ten years, Myanmar is now ranked along with North Korea, Eritrea, Iran, Turkmenistan, and China at the very bottom of the Index.


New Zealand now ranks at No. 11 in 2022
