We here at x.news are proud to be able to assist journalists worldwide to do their work efficiently and carefully. But even today it is still not a given to work in this profession without fear and danger, something that sad cases unfortunately remind us from time to time.

The World Press Freedom Day on May 3rd, introduced by the UN General Assembly in 1993, reminds us every year of the fundamental importance of free reporting and journalists who have lost their lives in the exercise of their profession.

Due to COVID-19, the related UN conference in the Netherlands was postponed from the end of April to mid-October, where it will be debated together with the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists (November 2). Like many other events, they are trying to switch to digital channels in order to be able to celebrate the day in May.

RSF Ranking 2020

Every year RSF produces a world map in which countries are ranked according to their press freedom. Obviously the self-assessment of various countries differs from this, yet the methodology is transparent.

On top of the 2020 ranking is the Scandinavian region, which takes the first four places. After that, there is a colourful mix of the world regions including the 180 countries examined.

We congratulate the top 10 countries on their placement and are curious about further developments in the current year. COVID-19 is not only a dramatic event for the economy. Journalism is challenged by the worldwide pandemic too.

Stay safe and have a good and precious time with your families!
