Iraqi Censorship


A Canadian advising the Iraqi Media Network is claiming U.S. attempts to censor the news, specifically that, as the Boston Globe reports, "the US-led administration's Office of Reconstruction and Humanitarian Assistance had requested the station's news programs be reviewed by the wife of Jalal Talabani, a Kurdish leader and a major figure in the postwar politics of Iraq. "Could you imagine a political leader being able to check the content of any Western media?" [Canadian documentarian Dan] North said." U.S. officials had no comment to the Globe.
