Iran charges American journalist with espionage


news.yahoo.com

It seems that journalists are no longer off limits in the modern world.

Gone are the days where 2 reporters and a notebook could bring down a government. These days investigative journalism is treated as spying, treason.

Not saying that this journalist isn't guilty. I don't know one way or another. Just that it seems that reporters are being cracked down on worldwide for what they can and can't explore.
