    U.S. Plunges To 46th In World Press Freedom Index... Below Romania

    Submitted by Mike Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,



    One of my most popular posts of 2013 highlighted the decline of America’s once large and enviable middle class. It was titled: How Does America’s Middle Class Rank Globally? #27, and it helped to dispel many myths Americans (particularly the mainstream propaganda media) continue to tell to themselves.

    As you might expect, the economic decline of a nation into rule by a handful of corrupt oligarchs will have many other negative repercussions. One of these is a loss of civil rights and freedoms that many of us have taken for granted. Reporters Without Borders puts out their Press Freedom Index every year, and the 2014 ranking came out today. It was not a good showing for the USSA. Specifically, the U.S. registered one of the steepest falls of all nations, down 13 slots to the #46 position. As the screen shot shows, just above Haiti and just below Romania.



    More coverage from the AFP:

    Paris (AFP) – Conflicts continued to weigh heavily on the media last year but press freedom was also under increasing threat from abuses by democracies like the United States, Reporters Without Borders said Wednesday.

    In its annual World Press Freedom Index, the Paris-based media rights watchdog warned of the “growing threat worldwide” from the “tendency to interpret national security needs in an overly broad and abusive manner”.

    The United States was singled out for its pursuit of intelligence leaker Edward Snowden, the conviction of WikiLeaks informer Bradley Manning and the secret seizure of phone records from the Associated Press.

    The group, known by its French acronym RSF, said the United States had suffered “one of the most significant declines” in press freedom last year, dropping 13 places to 46th in the 180-country index, wedged between Romania and Haiti.

    “Countries that pride themselves on being democracies and respecting the rule of law have not set an example, far from it,” RSF said.
    Repeat after me: USA! USA!

    yea its sad--

    from what i have seen the news outlets are completely biased -- example --when the gay matrimony thing come up --all the TV news does is give the gay activist free airtime --the interview one and the go on and on about how their imagined rights to marry are being trampled.

    they NEVER interview the opposition to the gay agenda. EVER--

    "The Blaze" is giving some hope of open honest reporting..
    http://www.theblaze.com/ Even FOX walks a fine line on upsetting the Hollyweird commie controlled news and reporting.. They try but they don't push it, lest they upset the homos..
    Look what happened to Jay Leno. Few bad jokes about Nappy Head and goodbye.. Coincidence? yeah right..
    Absolute CIA planned coverup of Benghazi, with the cause being blamed on some stupid anti Rag Head film. People actually believed it, with the help of hitlary clintoooon and crew..
    Even the Rag Heads involved in the attack said "What film." Yup the commies "Hollyweirds" control what we will see and hear, and don't dare upset this new commie regime or you will be looking for work, like Jay..

    1st and 4th Amendments are virtually destroyed, and now they're coming after the 2nd and 10th(?)!!
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!

    "If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller
