Listening Post - Iran's media: The new red lines

On the Listening Post we track the treatment of media around the world. With the muzzling of news outlets, censorship of content and the arrest of journalists, Iran is a repeat offender. Over the past days, at least 14 reporters have been detained in a sweep of reform-minded news outlets in the country. The timing of these arrests is significant: In five months, Iran will hold presidential elections - the first after the 2009 polls that saw huge protests in Tehran, the footage of which was beamed around Iran and across the world.
