Computer security expert and chief research officer at F-Secure Mikko Hypponen whom I’ve been following on Twitter since last year’s re:publica posted an interesting link to the 2016 World Press Freedom Index which shows all Scandinavian countries on top, Switzerland ranks 7th, Austria 11th and Germany 16th.
According to reporters without borders all of these countries are in a good situation. Countries considered in satisfactory situations are e.g. Spain, ranked 34th, the UK 38th,the US 41st and France 45th.
Countries in orange have noticeable problems with freedom of the press, red countries are in a difficult situation and black countries are in a very serious situation.
