Media Situation in Bhutan has worsened this year even though the government claimed it is working to establish democratic government by holding first general elections soon.

It lost by 18 places compared to last year.

In 2005, the country ranked 142 out of 167 and in 2004, it ranked 146 out of 167 countries. In 2002, Bhutan was at top five worse offenders of press freedom in the world.

Bhutan scored 3717, 2500, 5150, 5583 and 9075 in 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004 and 2002 press freedom index respectively.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
