Fiji ranked 80 in World Press Freedom Index 2016

April 21, 2016

Fiji has improved from 93 in 2015 to 80 in 2016 in the latest World Press Freedom Index.

We’d like to take you back to stories we published in the same month seven years ago, when there was no press freedom in Fiji.

This was two years after the Bainimarama coup, around the time when censors were sent into newsrooms to monitor and approve what stories the media could publish.

Apart from the Fiji Sun which publishes rubbish and should no longer be called a ‘newspaper’ because apart from media ethics, the stories it publishes is just a disgrace to journalism and the great journalists that Fiji has produced, the rest of the media in Fiji have come a long way since 2009.
