    Take THAT Austria.  Serves you right.  For expecting the Slovaks to freeze to death when Mr. Putin cut off the gas in one of the coldest winters in history.

      The conservative Freedom House has released its current rating of press freedom around the world. Here's their rating of Central Europe (a lower score is better):

      12 Switzerland
      16 Germany
      19 Czech R.
      21 Slovakia, Austria
      25 Poland
      36 Hungary

      Only Hungary's press is rated as merely partly free in Central Europe. Ukraine with "59" is doing the worst among Slovakia's neighbors. Within the European Union, Slovakia's press freedom is at the level of the United Kingdom, and ahead of France, Spain, Italy, Greece. U.S. press freedom is rated as "18," the freest press in the world is in the Nordic countries ("10").
