Based in Pristina, the Association of Journalists is weak and compromised: Kosovo was once ranked eightieth out of 180 countries in a Reporters Without Borders press freedoms index yet as the crisis of suppression deepens the rank sinks lower with every passing year as violations of the press and freedom speech continue without hindrance or meaningful challenge.
The freedom is still crushed by the weight of oppression in Kosovo’s warlord rule of crime. Kosovars may possess talents of the highest order, yet for them, it seems like there is no path of fame or distinction opened. Apparently for now, they cannot hope to attain those privileges while their daily life brethren remain chained.
This action of accepting rewards from a politician has made journalists look like they feel complete inferiority in relation to politicians.
In reality there will be no visa liberalization for citizens of the country, unless there is to be a political class free from corruption, but nevertheless evidence suggests that foreign powers have been all too willing to support corrupt political elites in return for political influence!
