According to a new edition of the World Press Freedom Index 2024 prepared by Reporters Without Borders (RSF), worldwide Press freedom is threatened by the same people who should be its guarantors: the political authorities.

Of the five indicators that make up the countries’ score, the political indicator is the one that decreases the most in 2024, with a drop of 7.6 points.

In that sense, according to the study, a growing number of Governments and state institutions fail in their role of guaranteeing an exemplary framework for the practice of journalism and for the right of citizens to reliable, independent and plural information.

For Reporters Without Borders, there is a Worrying deterioration of support and respect for media autonomyas well as an increase in the pressures exerted on them by States or other political actors.

“When more than half of the world’s population is called to the polls in 2024, RSF warns of an important phenomenon revealed by the World Press Freedom Index 2024: the decline of the political indicator, one of the five that make up this index“said the editorial director of Reporters Without Borders, Anne Bocande.

And he added that “States and political forces, regardless of their orientation, play an increasingly diminishing role in protecting press freedom. This misunderstanding is sometimes accompanied by a questioning of the role of journalists, or even the instrumentalization of the media in harassment or misinformation campaigns. Journalism worthy of the name is, on the contrary, a prerequisite for a democratic system and for the exercise of political freedoms.”

In addition to the political indicator, they are also analyzed in this Reporters Without Borders study the economic, legislative, social and security factors.

However, despite the above and the fact that freedom of the press is guaranteed in the Constitution, many times This right is not always respected in practice.

According to the Reporters Without Borders study Investigative journalism loses ground and attacks on journalists multiplyn. Furthermore, judicial proceedings against media outlets and journalists have become a recurring strategy to silence journalism.

Regarding the media landscape, although in Chile a certain level of diversity can be seen, lThe media mostly belong to economic groups.

Which means that possible conflicts of interest in the treatment of certain issues, for example, the environment or social issues, have dented the trust of a large part of the population.

In that context, it is for Reporters Without Borders to get Citizen demand for information pluralism is increasingwhich provides space for the development of alternative media, which still lack professionalism and stable economic and human resources.
