NOTES

The above rankings were last updated on February 28, 2019, and are based on the most recent Credibility Score Reports and Annual Audit Reports issued as of the end of 2018.

Freedom of the press is ostensibly officially guaranteed by the Tajikistan government, but independent press outlets remain restricted, as does a substantial amount of web content. Journalists are often obstructed from reporting on controversial events.  In practice, no public criticism of the regime is tolerated and all direct protest is severely suppressed, receiving no coverage in the local media.
