The Verge: Internet freedom continues to decline around the world, a new report says

The Verge: Internet freedom continues to decline around the world, a new report says. “Digital authoritarianism is on the rise, according to a new report from a group that monitors internet freedoms. Freedom House, a pro-democracy think tank, said today that governments are seeking more control over users’ data while also using laws nominally intended to address ‘fake news’ to suppress dissent. It marked the eighth consecutive year that Freedom House found a decline in online freedoms around the world.”
