Structural violence against journalists and disinformation impede the advancement of press freedom in Brazil, says RSF

"Reporters without Borders (RSF) launched on May 3 the World Press Freedom Ranking, an annual publication that compares the working conditions of press professionals in 180 countries and territories. Structural violence against journalists, a media scenario marked by high private concentration and the increase in disinformation were highlighted by RSF as impediments to the advancement of press freedom in Brazil, which this year occupies the 110th position.

According to the report, this is the first time since 2018 that Brazil has not shown a drop in the ranking. Last year, the country was in 111th position, considered the 'red zone', in which the press situation was evaluated as difficult."
