Bad Denmark

Reporters sans frontieres publishes a ranking of countries by press freedom, and Denmark has slipped from joint first (most free) place. Why?

Denmark (19th) dropped from joint first place because of serious threats against the authors of the Mohammed cartoons published there in autumn 2005. For the first time in recent years in a country that is very observant of civil liberties, journalists had to have police protection due to threats against them because of their work.
And this is Denmark's fault?
