Iran’s Press TV has been banned by most international satellite operators. It has now been taken down from video-sharing scheme YouTube.
“We have not been able to upload new videos on our official YouTube page since July 25th. Both YouTube and (its parent company) Google have declined to comment,” said Press TV Newsroom Director Hamid Reza Emadi, in a report carried by BBC Monitoring.
The channel has been blacklisted by most European governments following complaints about fairness, and lack of balance.
