Trafficking Anti-Iranian Propaganda


Spreading hate and lies.

by Stephen Lendman

American media scoundrels honed it to an art form. Britain's BBC and commercial media regularly feature it. So does a newly licensed anti-Iranian TV channel. More on Raha TV below.

On US and UK television, truth is verboten. Last January, Britain banned Press TV broadcasts. In a disturbing move without valid reasons, the British Office of Communications (Ofcom) pulled the plug disgracefully.

For months it threatened to do so. In January, Press TV was removed from the Sky Platform. High UK officials approved it. Prime Minister David Cameron perhaps had final say.

In October, EU nations followed suit and then some. They lawlessly blocked 19 Iranian television and radio stations. European satellite provider Eutelsat sold its soul. It went along. It agreed to silence them across Europe. Doing so violated its own charter.

Banishing Iranian broadcasters is clear irresponsible censorship. Doing so suppressed truth. European television viewers were deprived of real news, information, commentary and analysis.
