Excellent new map of press freedom

Follow the link below to a great map that combines the information on press freedom from Freedom House and Reporters Without Borders.

Press Freedom Map

The map is based on Google Earth. Double clicking on a country brings up the statistics complied by Freedom House and Reporters Without Borders.

Kinda makes me want to learn how to do this so I can overlay the Transparency International ratings. After all, there is a correlation between press freedom and corruption. (More freedom, less corruption.)

Very cool!
