Georgia scored 28.98 points in  the World Press Freedom Index published by Reporters Without Borders. Georgia has improved its  position by one step compared to the 2018 Index.

 

The organization's website says that " Georgia’s media landscape is pluralist but still very polarized."

"The reforms of recent years have brought improvements in media ownership transparency and satellite TV pluralism, but owners often still call the shots on editorial content. The outcome of the continuing dispute over ownership of the main national opposition TV channel, Rustavi 2, will therefore have a big impact," reads the report.



Authors of the report say that the outcome of the continuing dispute over ownership of the main national opposition TV channel, Rustavi 2, will therefore have a big impact.


"Violence against journalists is less frequent although threats are often reported. The investigation into Azerbaijani dissident journalist Afgan Mukhtarly’s abduction in Tbilisi in 2017 has yet to produce any convincing results. Mukhtarly’s mysterious abduction and subsequent reappearance in police custody in Azerbaijan was shocking for Georgians, who have traditionally offered a refuge to dissidents from neighbouring countries," reads the report.
