Syria was ranked the 177th out of 180 countries on the press freedom list, followed by only three countries: Turkmenistan, Eritrea, and lastly North Korea, with the last three nations dominating the rankings for the previous 13 years.

The ranking, which annually assesses the status of the press in 180 countries, considered Syria along with Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Yemen make the Middle East the most dangerous and difficult to practice journalism in the world.

The World Press Freedom Index (WFD) revealed that the 2018 version shows an increase in hatred against journalists. The declared hostility to the media encouraged by political officials and the pursuit of authoritarian regimes to impose their vision of the press is a threat to democracies.
Norway was the world's leading freedom of journalists in the world, followed by  Sweden and the Netherlands, while the United States was ranked the 45th. The President, Donald Trump described as "an openly hateful speech against the press as reporters are enemies of the people."

 Reporters Without Borders in its previous classification of press freedom 2017 reported: "No action has been taken so far to protect journalists from the barbaric madness that the dictator, Bashar al-Assad, is running over the current crisis and not from the fire of fanatical jihadist groups."

A report in December 2017 told Reporters Without Borders that for six years Syria has been the most dangerous country for journalists and remains the number one country in the detention of dozens of foreign journalists as hostages to the Syrian government and the Islamic State, in addition to the al-Nusra Front, which is currently Hayat Tahrir al-Sham.
