The Washington Post and Reporters Without Borders co-hosted the 2019 World Press Freedom Index, a report and study that examined press freedom around the world. Journalists and foreign diplomats discussed the findings, which included a downgrade for the United States, attributed to President Trump’s rhetoric toward the media and concerns over the safety of journalists following the Capital Gazette newspaper shooting in Maryland. Norway, Finland and Sweden ranked in the top three while Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan in the bottom three. The United States dropped three rankings, from 45 to 48, out of 180 countries surveyed. close
