￼Informe sobre el estado de la libertad de prensa en Colombia 2018
In 2018, Freedom in the World recorded the 13th consecutive year of decline in global freedom. The reversal has spanned a variety of countries in every region, from long-standing democracies like the United States to consolidated authoritarian regimes like China and Russia. The overall losses are still shallow compared with the gains of the late 20th century, but the pattern is consistent and ominous. Democracy is in retreat.
Freedom Forum recorded a total of 98 press freedom violations that directly affected at least 223 journalists in 2018.
