North Korea has once more been nominated as the country with worst freedom of press, religion, and expression.
North Korea oppresses information, and even the media that's being used for state propagandas are under heavy surveillance and control of the state. The internet is heavily restricted to the very few. There is almost no exchange with the outside world.
The reason for the oppression is freedom of press will hinder maintaining the oppressive regime. So, they control the media by only praising Kim Jong Un, and hide all the important things from its people.
I feel sorry for the North Korean people who are living in a dark age without freedom of press.
