    Reformist newspapers banned in Iran

    Link
    BBC News - Reformist newspapers banned in Iran

    Quote from article(The official had criticised the political stance of the opposition leader.

    Hossein Karroubi said that three months ago there had been an attack on the offices of the journal and the attackers had taken "five or six" computer drives with them.

    Publication of the newspaper Etemaad was suspended by Iran's Media Supervision Board, which says it was responsible for repeated press offences.)

    I can see parallels between this banning of opposition to dictatorial rule in Iran to the start of demonizing Political opposition to our great messiah in the US.

    I can't. Not until the point in which dissent against Obama is made illegal, which I think would be highly unlikely in this country.

    I disagree, first the Socialists go after the Media, if they are unable to close opposition Media down, they tend to drown it's message.
    Socialists are unable to stand opposition.

    Yeah, let us know when Obama attacks journalists. Until then, don't make silly parallels.

    Plenty of socialist governments (not communist) have relatively free press. Plenty of right-wing fascist governments have attacked the media.

    What? You think that's unique to Obama? That other politicians haven't done similar things? Shout down the media with bias and propaganda, call the otherside names and try to remove reason from debate. That's not isolated to Obama or the Democrats. It's a time honored tradition of politicians in general.

    Re: Reformist newspapers banned in Iran

    Statements from Obama Administration members have already signaled their plans to shut down opposition, as in talk radio.

    The majority of TV news is already part of the 5th column and aiding in Obama propaganda while ignoring stories like the one that has brought down ACORN and many others unfavorable to Obama.

    Like wise most news papers are seriously biased in fovor of not only Obama but it seems Socialism/Marxism as well.

    Hugo Chavez has taken much the same actions to stifle opposition and it is a well worn custom when the Government begins to go against the will of the people the first thing to suffer is free speech and freedom of the press.

    You will notice that the attacks on Fox News and Glenn Beck have been reduce considerably.

    The reason is they back fired driving Beck's ratings to astronomical numbers beating all other news programs combined.

    I ran is in the process of trying to push the west into more than just sanctions.

    Iran's leaders want a war to force the return of the Maudi and Jesus and thus fulfill the Prophecy of their Armageddon.

    I know some will say this is all BS but Obama was a Christian Church goer until he took office and in over a year has been to Church only 3 or 4 times. Wow some belief system.

    I believe Iran looks on Obama as sympathetic to their beliefs or at least weak on opposing Islam, and so far he has been less than forceful in dealing with either Iran or terrorism for that matter.

    I look into the history of Dictatorships and al Tyrannical governments show that control of the news is essential.
