Honduras

Ever-evolving threats

The situation of the Honduran media has worsened steadily for almost a decade—especially since the 2009 coup. Steeped in corruption and the violence of organized crime groups, Honduras has one of the hemisphere’s highest rates of impunity. Journalists with opposition media and community media are often physically attacked, threatened, or forced to flee abroad. Abusive legal proceedings are also often brought against journalists, and prison sentences and prohibitions are frequent.
