Exiled Journalists

What is the impact of censorship in modern Iranian journalism?

An Iranian immigrant journalist in his/her new place of residence is confronted with the new media culture ruling the host country, which is completely different from the time before his/her immigration. The most important indicator of this experience may be censorship and supervision in the pursuit of professional activity, which caused personal and professional expenses for them and ended by immigration. These journalists cannot return to their birthplace as they work in media outlets broadcasting against the current regime of Iran. The access of these individuals to the Iranian society in order to track their professional activities has also been curtailed, and content production for Persian speakers is largely dependent on domestic and foreign news agencies, Iranian newspapers’ websites, social networks, former journalist colleagues inside Iran, and friends and acquaintances as well.
