On Thursday, Freedom House released “Freedom of the Press 2014,” a report on the state of global press freedoms. Political tension and unrest in a number of countries contributed to the lowest global press freedom in 10 years, according to a press release. In the U.S., restrictions on national security reporting also caused a loss of some press freedoms.
