Media is usually considered as the authentic showcase of freedom. In Mauritius, media is free of censorship and political constraints. However, to preserve peace and harmony, the press is usually very careful in dealing with religion and other social issues.
Freedom of speech is evident. Auto-censorship is generally a matter of common sense and ethical responsibility. Reporters and journalists are free from any state-imposed censorship rules. Newspapers and radios are private-owned agencies, each working within its own editorial direction.
