Banned in Tehran: Al Jazeera.

The truth? They can't handle the truth.

London, May 08 – Iran’s Majlis, or Parliament, has banned the prominent Arabic-language satellite channel al-Jazeera, an international press freedoms watchdog said on Monday.

“Parliamentary speaker Gholam Ali Hadad Adel announced yesterday that journalists employed by the Qatar-based TV station Al-Jazeera would be banned from the Iranian parliament until the station formally apologises for a talk-show last week in which Iraqi Shiite leader Ali Sistani’s political legitimacy was questioned”, Reporters Without Borders said in a report posted on its website.
