Well, they explain it by the arrests of journalists during 
demonstrations and the denial of visas to foreign journalists, not 
restrictions on press freedom per se.

Having just returned from my first trip to the US in 3 years, I have to 
say that the media landscape in many places is quite bleak, with only 
one newspaper and identically-sounding TV stations in many places. But 
that is the result of market forces, not government restrictions, so 
that plays no part in the RSF rating.
