European satellite provider Eutelsat SA has stopped the broadcast of several Iranian satellite channels on the order of the European Commission.
Many viewers all over the world have censured the move, which is seen as a clear violation of press freedom.
Banning Iranian news channels, including Press TV, shows a concern on the side of the European Union and the European Commission on alternate news being broadcasted.
Press TV has conducted an interview with Danny Schechter, editor of mediachannel.org, from New York, to further discuss the issue.
