Gabon's main broadcast media are government-controlled.
US-based Freedom House said in 2011 that the authorities use "legal harassment, threats, and financial pressure" to curb critical reporting.
Gabon's daily newspapers are government-affiliated. Many private weeklies are controlled by opposition parties. There are a few private broadcasters.
Gabon's state broadcaster operates two TV stations, a French-language radio network and provincial stations. Radio France Internationale is available on FM.
There were nearly 109,000 internet users by December 2011 (Internetworldstats.com).
