In countries without free press, why don't newspapers simply move entirely overseas?

In regions without free press, or where press are under constant threat of arrest, why don't media organisations move their entire organisation outside the country on which they report?

For example, if Hong Kong's Apple Daily moved to any of a number of other countries, they would not be easily raided.

Is this a 'legacy' effect, where long-standing newspapers and media organisations have too-strong regional ties, or perhaps simply that the technology required didn't previously exist (and if it is just these factors, have newer, more modern media organisations started to offshore their work to protect themselves) or is there more to it?
