Iran's state-run news network Press TV has been taken off air in North America, the English-language television station has said on its website.

The channel said on Saturday that it had been dropped from the Galaxy 19 satellite platform that allowed it to broadcast in the United States and Canada, without saying when it was dropped.

The state-owned, 24-hour network broadcasts world news and pro-government views beyond Iran's borders.

The network called the move "another flagrant violation of freedom of speech".

(More at the link. My regards to the local LA PressTV reporter, who has always told the truth and told it well, regarding Occupy and other local activism.)
