BFM speaks to Wathshlah Naidu, the executive director of the Center for Independent Journalism, to get her perspective on the recently announced results from the Reporters Without Borders (RSF) world press freedom index.

Malaysia’s ranking dropped 34 spots from its 73rd position last year.

BFM finds out from her whether Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil’s excuse about taking into consideration “Eastern values” is valid.
