Media watchdog says 'authoritarian nations double down' on censorship by using extreme measures to silence journalists.

The US-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) said on Tuesday that the worst three countries for press censorship - Eritrea, North Korea and Turkmenistan - use the media "as a mouthpiece of the state, and independent journalism is conducted from exile".
