10 Most Censored Countries

The nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has released its 10 Most Censored Countries list. The list includes Burma, Turkmenistan, Equatorial Guinea, Libya, Eritrea, Cuba, Uzbekistan, Syria, and Belarus. The top name on the list was North Korea:
North Koreans live in the most censored country in the world, a new analysis by the Committee to Protect Journalists has found. The world’s deepest information void, communist North Korea has no independent journalists, and all radio and television receivers sold in the country are locked to government-specified
frequencies.
