Costa Rica leads region in press freedom
Reporters Without Borders says that Costa Rica has the best record for press liberty in Latin America, while Cuba is the region's worst violator of media freedoms.
The Paris-based press advocacy group says in its 2017 Press Freedom Index released Wednesday that Costa Rica placed sixth on a list ranking 180 countries according to level of press freedom.
The watchdog organization said Mexico is the Western Hemisphere's deadliest country for reporters. It was ranked 147 on the list.
