Republic of Congo profile
News broadcasts on state-run radio and TV generally reflect the government line.
Stations from nearby Kinshasa, in DR Congo, can be received in Brazzaville and rebroadcasts of the BBC (103.8 FM), Radio France Internationale, and the Voice of America are available.
A press law provides for jail terms for incitement to violence and racism. Government respect for press freedom is "limited", says US-based Freedom House.
The newspapers which appear in Brazzaville are all privately-owned. Some of them carry criticism of the government.
There were some 295,000 internet users by December 2011 (Internetworldstats.com).
