World Press Freedom Index 2020:Incredibly!North Korea is ahead of China.China is second from bottom while NK is fourth.--Impossible! Right?

Update:

Published every year since 2002 by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), the World Press Freedom Index is an important advocacy tool based on the principle of emulation between states. Because it is well known, its influence over governments is growing. Many heads of state and government fear its annual publication. 

Update 2:

What a terrible society without Freedom of the Press.

    Cato Institute is a very conservative institute, I take their input with a grain of salt. There are two other institutions that contribute to this annual index; one of which is located in Canada and another in Germany. Therefore, these indexes that have now been around for several years are meaningless. Impossible is right.

    And just how would the "World Press Freedom Index" even know this information from closed communist countries?
