Media in Brunei is neither diverse nor uncensored. When reporting on politics and religion, the private press either self-censors or is owned or controlled by the royal family.
Government-controlled Radio Television Brunei dominates the broadcast media.
Reporters Without Borders (RSF) claims that self-censorship is required of all journalists who work for the government-run media outlet and major newspapers.
The implementation of a strict interpretation of Islamic Sharia law, which forbids remarks deemed to be blasphemous or critical of the royal family, according to RSF, "makes already harsh legislation even harsher.".
