Covering Iran’s Crackdown From Thousands of Miles Away

From a Washington Post story bu Elahe Izadi headlined “Covering Iran’s unrest and crackdown from thousands of miles away”:

For more than two months, journalist Golnaz Esfandiari has been reporting nonstop on the protests and brutal crackdowns erupting across Iran β€” from more than 2,500 miles away in Prague.

It’s not easy. With foreign press virtually absent inside Iran β€” where authorities are arresting local journalists, restricting internet access and allegedly spreading misinformation online β€” distant correspondents such as Esfandiari face a deluge of challenges in getting accurate news about Iran to the rest of the world.
