Mexico

Mexico is among the most dangerous countries in the world to practice journalism. Killings, threats, intimidation and extortion by organized crime, compounded with weak institutions and widespread impunity have forced the press to self-censor or simply remain silent in many states. Freedom House works to improve efforts by both local activists and the Mexican government to prevent and respond to attacks to the press, and enhance the availability of emergency assistance for at-risk journalists and activists.
