Over the past twelve months, we've seen Edward Snowden reveal the NSA's secrets, and much more. United States is now on the same list as Cuba, Iran, North Korea and China. Reporters Without Borders notes that entire governments aren't doing the spying themselves, but rather government agencies, like the NSA.

Reporters Without Borders says that this is a big problem, as those governments are setting a bad example by allowing the spying, where they said: "The mass surveillance methods employed in these three countries, many of them exposed by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, are all the more intolerable because they will be used and indeed are already being used by authoritarians countries such as Iran, China, Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain to justify their own violations of freedom of information."
