NEW YORK (PNN) - August 24, 2013 - Video-sharing site YouTube deactivated Press TV's official page without explanation after the Israeli-Amerikan Anti-Defamation League (ADL) ordered it to terminate the Iranian channel's live broadcast.
"We have not been able to upload new videos on our official YouTube page since July 25. Both YouTube and (its parent company) Google have declined to comment," said Press TV Newsroom Director Hamid Reza Emadi.
He added that YouTube was "in fact responding to an ADL order to stop us from revealing Israeli crimes to the world."
An article on ADL's official website has accused Press TV of bypassing the West's sanctions by broadcasting live via YouTube and other Internet and mobile platforms.
"ADL has contacted YouTube regarding concerns about Press TV," reads the article, further noting that the station's "broadcast on YouTube comes at a time when the (Fascist Police States of Amerika), the (Fascist) European Union and others in the international community are seeking to isolate Iran."
Since January 2012, Press TV has come under mounting pressure from European governments and satellite companies, which have taken the alternative channel off the air across the Fascist European Union.
"In recent years has emerged a channel that not only challenges the Zionists' long-time media dominance, but also has it questioned the West's silence on their crimes against humanity. That's Press TV and they're determined to silence it," Emadi added.
He said Press TV had to create an alternative YouTube account to upload its videos.
"Viewers can now watch our videos at www.youtube.com/user/PresstvNewsCast," he said.
