Reza Moghadasi the general manager of Mehr News Agency: Government muzzles the free flow of information day after day!

On May first this year the Government of Ahmadinejad introduced new regulation for News Agencies. One of the regulation says that; if the " media supervising panel " decided to ban a news agency from publication, the communication ministry has the duty to " filter" that news agency right away. One other items in the regulation asks the journalists to name their sources. Mr. Moghadasi on opposition to Government view says: "the source is journalist himself and sometimes it is in the interest of the society that; not to name the source." These and other pressure from Government on media and journalists create a situation which the Committee to Protect Journalists in New York rank Iran in the 4th place for censorship.
