It was totally free until Reuters decided to publish some of our ICBM locations, now classified information is better protected and news agencies violating it are sanctioned or censored. Otherwise it is free.

Slightly filtered. Many Western values are disgusting and corrupt and we cannot stand for such disgusting things. However, the media can be dubbed and censored in certain areas to prevent ideas like homosexuality or absent minded "progressive" ideas of education or family corrupt our society. There's no reason to ban it outright, especially in this age where anyone can turn on their Tesla Beacon and pick up signals from around the world.

The Federation of Free Republics do not practice censorship, as censorship is prohibited by our Constitution. Western media is commonly available in the Federation, but much of it is considered overly anti-capitalistic or simply of poor quality. If something is considered to be anti-capitalistic propaganda, it lacks mainstream appeal in the Federation.

As far as we're aware, the "United States" has become fragmented into dozens of small nations. We have few significant relations with any of them. The western part of Fatatatutti is sparsely populated because typhoons tend to come from that direction. There are no media outlets situated there.

As for foreign media in general, we have no restrictions. People are free to access what they want via satellite, the Internet, etc.

The Socialist Republic of Andrew nation is located in the far east, and are not huge fans of western media, in fact, we have a closed borders policy to most of the world.
So western media in the SRA is mostly banned with a few exceptions, due to we still like some western music, like country and rock, etc, but anything else that isn't music is banned from the SRA, especially any western government and news channels, or any commercials that criticizes or insults our leader, nation, government, military, or anything else that may influence our people to get into bad habits.

Since most western nations are now colonies of good nations, we no longer restrict western media. Except that media is from American terrorists, of course.

Western media isn’t really favored in Xeloncaresia for various reasons, including the fact that the west supports things that Xeloncaresians find meritless or counterfeit(materialism, egocentrism, superficiality, etc), as well as Western media’s tendency to portray poor stereotypes. Also, the idea of media being used solely for entertainment purposes doesn’t really exist in Xeloncaresia. Media in Xeloncaresia is required to make a person think, theorize, learn, or/and be challenged. Though entertainment is present, it’s not vapid like a lot of the media in the western world.

Western media isn't banned in Zhouran, but it is generally viewed with suspicion for various reasons. For example, hollywood films tend to undergo checking by the National Media Administration, any hollywood films that are of questionable nature such as the intended/unintended promotion of white supremacy (such as the usage of racial stereotypes and white-savior narratives) are thrown into the dumpster bin. Meanwhile, western corporate news outlets are also supervised due to their nature of corporate-bias and fake news.

Media originating from most of the world, including the cultural West, is entirely banned within the Socialist Republic of Azerbaijan. The ASR would be failing in its duties if it did not shield its people-masses from the poisonous, capitalist lies of such foreign imperialist institutions. If one were to be caught with any items of western media (newspapers, films, etc.) they can expect harsh punishment, up to execution if they are found to have been spreading such filth amongst the population.
