The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has released their 2015 Report where Cuba once again finds itself among the 10 most censured countries in the world. Some of the report’s “lowlights” on Cuba include the following:
- Cuba continues to have the most restricted climate for press freedom in the Americas.
- Print and broadcast media are wholly controlled by the one-party Communist state.
- Although the Internet has opened up some space for critical reporting, service providers are ordered to block objectionable content.
- Critical blogs and online news platforms are largely inaccessible to the average Cuban, who still has not benefited from a high-speed Internet connection financed by Venezuela.
- The government continues to target critical journalists through harassment, surveillance, and short-term detentions.
