In August, the National Communications Council (CNC), a government-controlled media regulatory body, suspended the independent bimonthly newspaper Nku'u Le Messager over an editorial it said insulted the council. The paper was allowed to reopen three weeks later, after it bowed to the CNC's instructions and reshuffled its editorial team.
