UK bans Press TV: 'Iran getting closer to total isolation'

By RT almost 7 years ago

Britain has revoked the press license of Iran-based English language broadcaster Press TV, accusing it of violating press regulations. But some say the decision was really motivated by British geopolitical interests.

­The Office of Communications (Ofcom), a government-approved watchdog overseeing broadcasting and telecommunications in the UK, says the channel does not control its content.

Phil Rees, a UK-based media analyst and author talks to RT suggesting that the driving force behind the decision is geopolitics.
