Censorship and self-censorship are another problem in Iranian and Persian-language media. In this webinar, you will be able to discuss the various means of accessing uncensored news in the internet age. You will also be able to investigate issues of self-censorship. Both in Iran and abroad, the level of self-censorship among Iranian newspaper journalists is very high. Within Iran, fear of arrest is the primary motive for self-censorship, while outside of Iran, reasons include fear of losing one’s job or financial resources.
