Pejman Yousefzadeh: Iran in Turmoil.


Several foreign news organisations complained Sunday that Iranian authorities were blocking their reporters from covering protests against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election.

German public television channels ZDF and ARD said their reporters were not allowed to broadcast their reports, while the BBC said the signals of its Persian services were being jammed from Iran.

The Dubai-based Arab news channel Al-Arabiya in Tehran was forbidden from working for a week and Dutch broadcaster Nederland 2 said its journalist and cameraman were arrested and ordered to leave the country.



Just goes to show the increasing uselessness of mainstream media. Videos of protesters being shot by Iranian police are appearing on the internet within minutes of the occurrence. In the videos themselves, you can see other demonstrators recording the atrocities on their phones and cameras. The MSM can't hope to compete with that, but, more importantly, this revolution really is being televised. Now the only question is, how will we respond.
