Barren Land of Press Freedom
Kathmand, May 02, 2009: Politics has been liberal but environment for media and media workers have not changed so much in the last one year of democratic practice in Bhutan, a new report says.
Entitled ‘Barren Land of Press Freedom’, the new report by Association of Press Freedom Activists (APFA) – Bhutan mentions the murky picture of media freedom and freedom of speech and expression. Media outlets have increased but still journalists work under the self-censorship environment.
The report is divided into two parts. First details the media environment in the last one year while the second part collects the achievement that APFA made in the last five years.
This is the third annual press freedom report published by APFA-Bhutan. You can download here.
