While developments such as the Arab Spring show the power of the Internet, there remain news blackouts, harassment of bloggers, and even attempts to shut down social media in several nations. This is one of the key findings of Reporters Without Borders, which released its annual “Enemies of the Internet” report on Monday, listing countries that curtail access to the Web and freedom of expression.
