ABOUT THIS VIDEO

Does the free exchange of ideas bring freedom? Not when rogue states use media to intimidate their critics. That’s common practice for the Iranian government, which controls dozens of TV channels in Arabic. In this clip, the host threatens an American journalist based in Baghdad: Reuters bureau chief Ned Parker. Mr. Parker fled Iraq to safety in the United States — but most victims of media intimidation in the Middle East are local Arab voices with nowhere to run.
