Freedom of Press in Japan/The 3rd-Rate Journalist in Japan-III

Reporters Without Borders, the global nonprofit group, reported the freedom of press in 2011globally. As many expected, Japan placed 22nd out 179 nations, slipping from 11th the year before due to “excessive restrictions” on the Fukushima nuclear disaster (Japan Times 27 January 2012).Also on the list, the United States fell 27 places to 47th after many Occupy Wall Street protests were arrested. Meanwhile, some countries in the Middle East improved their ranks. Tunisia rose 30 places to 134th and Libya ranked 154th, improving their ranks dramatically.
